MMR and MenACWY vaccinations
While at university it is important to ensure you keep on top of any vaccinations you may need. All university students are strongly advised to receive the mumps, measles, rubella (MMR) and MenACWY jabs.
If you are unsure if you are protected against MMR and meningitis we recommend checking with parents and then your GP.
The vaccinations are free to all students attending university who are under 25 years of age and can be administered by 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 four types of meningitis – A, C, W and Y and septicaemia, and is a single injection to the upper arm.
If you haven’t received any of the vaccinations contact your GP as soon as possible.
