If you’re off to university this September then you’re probably starting to get nervous and excited about what’s to expect. No doubt you’ve got a list of things you need to do before you start the next chapter of your life.
Amongst the pots and pans, iron, ironing board, washing basket and new books you should also add the meningitis W vaccine on the list. New research was published last week showing the rise in meningitis W cases, especially amongst students.
As a student accommodation management company it’s our duty to offer first class care to all our tenants and if GPs are seeing an increase in meningitis W then we want to make sure you’re all protected as much as possible.
Fresher’s flu is incredibly common within the first few weeks of being a student. Partying hard and neglecting your wellness is all part of the student initiation, but we’d hate for you to miss out on lectures and seminars with something more serious.
It’s not something to panic about but if you’re worried or concerned then please do call your local GP surgery to get more info before making an appointment for the vaccination.
In the meantime you can read this article on the BBC website for further information on Meningitis W, it’s symptom and side effects.
Prevention is always better than cure so do what you can now to be protected and ensure your September term gets off to the best possible start.
