With term restarting and students starting to mix closely, we want to remind all students of the vaccines they should be up-to-date with and ensure as many students as possible are protected from serious, vaccine preventable diseases.
If you are a student, you should know that getting vaccinated is the best way to help protect yourself and others.
Why get vaccinated?
Infectious diseases can spread easily in university and college communities. More face to face contact means there's a higher risk of you catching and passing on infectious diseases.
What vaccines are available?
As a student, you are eligible for the following vaccines.
- Coronavirus (COVID-19)
- Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR)
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Meningitis ACWY (MenACWY)
