Meningococcal Vaccination Programme
Posted on 11 Aug 2015
Meningococcal ACWY Vaccination Programme -
the Department of Health has recommended a vaccination catch-up programme in August/September, initially focusing on patients born between 02.07.96 and 01.07.97 and also older first time university students aged 19-24. This follows a sudden and accelerating increase in cases of meningococcal group W across the UK. We have organised a clinic for Thursday 27.08.15 - please look out for your appointment letter! It is important that other first time university students who have not yet been vaccinated should ring the surgery to make an appointment also.
