The new Meningitis ACWY vaccines are licensed in the UK for use in the prevention of serious strains of meningitis.

Meningitis ACWY vaccines offer protection against invasive meningococcal diseases of strains 'A', 'C', 'W' and 'Y'. The vaccine is now recommended for new college and university students in the UK. Meningitis W - a deadly and highly aggressive strain is now on the rise in the UK with a 1000% increase in known cases over the last 6 years.

Young people starting university or college this autumn are being urged to get a vaccine against meningitis. Public Health England says the Meningitis ACWY vaccine will help protect against meningitis W in particular as new university students are at risk as they often mix closely with groups of unfamiliar people - some who may unknowingly carry the bug.

The meningitis W infection is fatal in one in 10 cases and can lead to long-term health problems including deafness, epilepsy and amputations.
