Vaccine Reminder

Date: 16 September 2020

The Health Centre recommends you ensure your childhood vaccines are completed and can offer any missing vaccines.

We strongly recommend you get the Meningitis vaccines:

1. Bexsero for Meningitis B - 2 doses required

2. Menactra for Meningitis ACWY - 1 dose required (free to students entering Halls of Residence).

If you will be a new student in 2021, please get this before you come to campus.

Currently we are assisting the Ministry of Health with a catch up program for those who missed out on full MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) in childhood. There is no cost for the MMR vaccine, please seek this from your own GP or our Nurses.
