I was born in 1998 and I hadn't received it, I got it before I started uni (was required for Medical course). I would suggest you get it if you haven't had it, as meningitis is life threatening, so best to be on the safe side.

you weren't given it at birth, nor as a child. it helps prevent meningitis which is spread through close contact, ergo why it's recommended for uni. I'm having mine next week before I head off to uni. I would suggest you do too.

When were you born though? It was administered in schools to those born after August 1999

Please read the link, that’s why I attached it

Children aged 13 to 14 (school year 9) are being offered the MenACWY vaccine in school as part of the routine adolescent schools programme, alongside the 3-in-1 teenage booster, and as a direct replacement for the Men C vaccination.

Older teenagers

The MenACWY vaccine provides important protection, and all teenagers born between 1 September 1998 and 31 August 1999 are advised to arrange vaccination now with their GP.

I don't need to read the link. It's very simple. If you haven't had the vaccination, then get it. If you contract meningitis you can lose your limbs and die. Check with your GP to look through your records, or check your red book, if you haven't received it already, then get it.

well how about this then. request a copy of your vaccination history and see if it's there or not. if it's not, have it. besides, it can't hurt to get it again seeing as it's free.

I don't think sharing common sense is ignorance. If you haven't had the ACWY vaccination then you're not protected against those types of meningitis strains. If you've had the ACWY vaccination in year 9 and 10 then you won't need it again. Whether you need boosters or not I'm not sure, but the initial vaccination, if you've had it already, then you don't need another 'initial' vaccination. If you can't understand that then speak to your GP.

Is that what I said. I said to CHECK. If you have had it, which your records will show, then you have. You won't know unless you ask your practice for your vaccination history
