Meningitis Vaccination

Thursday, 16 March 2017 9:05am

Meningitis vaccination

The Ministry of Health and Student Health strongly encourage vaccination against meningococcal disease if you live in Residential Colleges .The potential risk relates to density of living conditions in this type of accommodation; this level of density may also apply in some rented accommodation.

No vaccine is ever 100% guaranteed to protect against disease. It is important that people who have symptoms suggestive of meningococcal disease or are seriously ill access medical care as soon as possible. Friends and flatmates should be ready to look after each other and know how to access urgent health care
