MenACWY - Are you aged 17 – 18? Are you going to University - then you need protection from Meningitis and Septicaemia
This MenACWY vaccine protects against meningitis (inflammation of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning) caused by meningococcal groups A, C, W and Y. The Surgery will be writing to all eligible patients so please phone the surgery to arrange an appointment to have the vaccination with one of our Practice Nurses.
It is very important that you take up the vaccine. It is being offered in response to a rapidly growing increase in cases of a highly aggressive strain of meningococcal disease group W. This disease can cause meningitis and septicaemia that can kill in hours, and those who recover may be left severely disabled. The vaccine also protects against 3 other meningococcal groups too – A, C and Y.
Starting university this year?
If you’re planning to go to university, please make an appointment as soon as possible before leaving for university. You are at more risk of meningitis and septicaemia in the first weeks at university when you mix with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria, which is usually spread through prolonged close contact. As the vaccine will also boost your protection against Men C, it replaces the “Freshers” Men C programme. If you decide not to have the vaccination please let us know so we can enter this on your medical records. Further information on the vaccination programme and meningococcal disease can be found on NHS Choices at: www.nhs.uk/Conditions/vaccinations/Pages/men-acwy-vaccine.aspx
