This year a new vaccination is being used to prevent meningococcal disease. You may have had a menC vaccination previously but this will not protect you against other meningococcal groups. The new 'MenACWY' vaccination will increase your protection against MenC aswell as help to protect you against three other meningococcal groups (A, W and Y).
It's recommended that all first time university entrants ('freshers') have the MenACWY vaccine before or soon after they start university. The programme will start in August 2015. New university students are at particularly high risk in the first weeks of term when they will come into contact with many new people of a similar age. you should get vaccinated straight away - ideally in your first week of term - don't leave it until later.
For more information on MenACWY vaccine please use the links below:

Research and clinical trials are an everyday part of the work done in the NHS.
The people who carry out research are mostly the same doctors and healthcare professionals who treat people. Their aim is to find better ways of looking after patients and keeping people healthy.
There are many different types of research. They cover a range of activities, from working in a scientific laboratory to carefully noting patterns of health and disease, and developing new treatments.
Health and social care research looks at many different issues, from illness, disease and disability to the way health and social care services are provided by the NHS.
