Country of origin: UK

Further to their announcement in March 2014, Public Health England has now formerly launched the four year Meningococcal C vaccination catch-up programme for new students. ‘Freshers’ between the ages of 17 and 25 years are asked to actively request the vaccination, ideally from existing family GPs, at least two weeks in advance of starting university. Those who have never received the Meningococcal C vaccination or were previously vaccinated at pre-school age are also eligible. GPs are not required to identify or contact prospective patients.
