The University’s Health & Safety Services is working closely with its public health colleagues at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to keep students informed of the dangers of Meningitis.
Meningitis is most commonly found in children and young people and the incidence of meningococcal W (Men W) disease is increasing in Scotland and across the rest of the UK.
Students who are under 25, attending university for the first time and have not already received a dose of MenACWY vaccine since August 2015 from their GP or at school, are encouraged to attend a vaccination session at Hamilton Campus.
The vaccination session, which is being administered by NHS staff, is taking place on Monday 10 October, from 9am to 4.30pm in the Alamada Building; in Room A154. This event follows a vaccination session at Paisley Campus in September and other sessions are currently being arranged for the University’s other campuses. If you have any questions regarding the vaccination session next month or future sessions please email HealthSafetyServices@uws.ac.uk
