During your time at university you may hear about or be in contact with Meningitis, Mumps or Glandular Fever. Visit the NHS website for symptoms, general information regarding these infections, and when to seek further medical help.
Older teenagers and university students are identified as being at a higher risk of infection because they tend to live in close contact in shared accommodation, such as university halls of residence.
If you haven’t had your Men ACWY vaccine, we recommend that you get in touch with your GP and ask for the vaccine. If you are over 25 and feel you would benefit from the meningitis vaccine, please contact your GP to discuss the options that are available to you.
Visit the meningitisnow.org website for more information on the signs and symptoms of meningitis.
