Meningitis ACWY vaccination

You should ideally get your Meningitis ACWY vaccination at least 2 weeks before starting at university so you are immune before coming to Bristol.

​Meningitis and Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) Vaccination

We will have appointments available from the 26th September for any new student under the age of 25, who registers with us and has not had their MeningitisACWY and/or MMR vaccination. You will need to register online then call or come in to make an appointment for your vaccinations.

Students over the age of 25

Students entering university for the first time, irrespective of age, who have never received a dose of MenC conjugate vaccine are eligible for MenACWY (students from the UK will have had Men C as part of the childhood immunisation programme)

Postgraduate students attending a UK university for the first time

Students entering a UK university for the first time, irrespective of age, who have never received a dose of MenC conjugate vaccine and have not had a MenACWY conjugate vaccination since the age of 10are eligible for MenACWY (students from the UK will have had Men C as part of the childhood immunisation programme)

Students with an unknown or uncertain immunisation history

If a student’s history of having a Men ACWY vaccination cannot be confirmed, and they are eligible, it is acceptable to offer a dose of the vaccine.
