Men ACWY vaccine

Share this page

Friday 19 May 2017

Meningococcal ACWY (Men ACWY) Vaccine is being offered to young people born between 01.09.98 and 31.08.99 who are no longer in education in Guernsey.

Men ACWY offers protection against meningitis (inflammation of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning) caused by four meningococcal strains, which are rare, but life-threatening.

The School Nursing Service has been offering vaccination to 14 - 18 year olds with the Meningococcal ACWY vaccine in schools and colleges.  This follows a rise in cases of Meningitis and Septicaemia due to Meningococcal Group W (Men W).  Older teenagers and university students are particularly at risk.

We would like to invite any young person with a date of birth between 01.09.98 and 31.08.99 not currently at school or a college, who has not already received this vaccine, to Lukis House to have this free of charge.

Further information about this vaccine can be found at www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations

There will be clinics held at Lukis House in May, July and August.  Please telephone 725241 extension 5286 to book an appointment.

The Men ACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different causes of Meningitis and Septicaemia - Meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases.

Meningitis is usually caught from people who carry these viruses or bacteria in their nose or throat but are not ill themselves.
