Extra vaccines for at-risk people
Some vaccines are only available on the NHS for groups of people who need extra protection.
If you're starting college or university you should make sure you've already had:
- the MenACWY vaccine – which protects against serious infections like meningitis. You can still ask your GP for this vaccine until your 25th birthday.
- 2 doses of the MMR vaccine – as there are outbreaks of mumps and measles at universities. If you have not previously had 2 doses of MMR you can still ask your GP for the vaccine.
Speak to your GP surgery if:
- you think you or your child have missed any vaccinations
- you or your child have a vaccination appointment – but you've missed it or cannot attend
They can book or rearrange the next available appointment.
It’s best to have vaccines on time, but you can still catch up on most vaccines if you miss them.
