Meningococcal ACWY conjugate vaccination (MenACWY)
This vaccination is being introduced into the national immunisation programme for England year 2015 to respond to a rapid and accelerating increase in cases of invasive meningococcal group W (MenW) disease, which has been declared a national incident. We are giving this vaccine to patients who are between 19years and 25 years old.
Programme for vaccination starts at end of September. Our elderly patients or those patients with long standing health issues are encouraged to book an appointment with the nurse. NHS staff are also advised to have the vaccination to sustain services during the winter months.
Please note patients with an egg allergy should not have the vaccination.
This is available to patients aged 70, 78 & 79 years old only. If you need further information about shingles and the vaccine please go to:
