MenACWY vaccine

Since August 2015 teenagers and new university students have been offered the MenACWY vaccine to improve protection against meningococcal group W (MenW) disease. The MenACWY vaccine protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia – Meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases.

The MenACWY vaccine is offered routinely to all young people around 13/14 years of age (school year 9).  All young people above this age but born after 1st September 1996 should already have been offered the vaccine as part of the two year catch up programme, either through the schools based programme or via their GP surgery.

Those who have not already received the vaccine should contact either their school nurse or GP surgery to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Young people remain eligible to receive the vaccine up to the age of 25.

The MenACWY vaccine should also be given to all individuals under 25 years of age who are planning to attend university for the first time or those in their first academic year at university if they have not already received the vaccine. Ideally the vaccine should be administered at least two weeks prior to starting university.
