Freshers across the UK are being urged by meningitis charities to get their MenACWY vaccine before starting university.
Being exposed to new people, bacteria and viruses at the start of university makes you more susceptible to meningitis.If you're under 25 and heading to university for the first time you can protect yourself and others by getting the MenACWY vaccine free from your GP.
We recommend you visit your GP before starting university to find out more about the vaccine and arrange your immunisation.

MenACWY directly protects vaccinated people from four different strains of meningococcal meningitis and septicaemia (groups A, C, W and Y) and also stops them from carrying the bacteria in the back of the nose and throat.
Take care and let's #stopthespread.
