The UK national immunisation programme has meant that dangerous diseases, such as polio, have disappeared in the UK. But these diseases could come back – they are still around in many countries throughout the world. That’s why it’s so important for you to protect yourself.
Please make sure you are up to date with all routine immunisations as recommended by the Department of Health
If you haven't had all the vaccinations, you can get them at our medical centre. All you need to do is register with the centre when you get here and you can arrange to get them done.
There are three highly recommended vaccines that all new students should get before starting University:
- Meningococcal ACWY
- Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
- HPV (recommended for female students)
