This poster promotes the new meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) vaccine available to university entrants starting this autumn. A catch–up programme offering MenACWY vaccination to all 13 to 19 year olds and new university entrants was started in August 2015. This is in response to a rapid and accelerating increase in cases of invasive meningococcal group W (MenW) disease. This poster, aimed at students who have just entered university from overseas or not directly from school, encourages them to get the new MenACWY vaccine to prevent invasive meningococcal disease.
