MMR and MenACWY vaccinations

While at university, it is important to ensure you keep on top of any vaccinations you may need. The NHS advises that if you are starting university you should make sure you've already had the MMR and the MenACWY Vaccine. If you are unsure if you are protected we recommend checking with your parents/carers or your GP.

The MMR vaccination consists of two jabs. It is essential to receive both doses to protect against the infection.

MenACWY protects you against serious infections like meningitis and is a single injection to the upper arm.  The vaccination is free to all students attending university who are under 25 years of age and can be administered by your GP.

If you haven’t received these vaccinations, contact your GP as soon as possible.

To find a GP near you go to the NHS webpages, or register at the De Montfort Surgery.
