What protection is available against meningitis?

We’ve told you what meningitis is, but how can you protect yourself?

Fight for now

The good news is there are vaccines available which prevent some types of meningitis; however there is no vaccine for all types. Ensure your safety and brush up on your signs and symptoms knowledge.

Students and young adults are particularly susceptible to an aggressive form of meningococcal bacteria, known as Men W. As a result of this, the Men ACWY vaccine has been introduced in the UK, free to all 17-18 year olds and first year uni students, aged 19-25.
