New Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) immunisation for first-time university entrants
From August 2015, the Scottish Government introduced a new vaccine to immunise students against Meningococcal ACWY, an aggressive form of the meningococcal disease. The vaccine is available to new university entrants, including international students, if you are a first year entrant and up to 25 years of age.
It is important that you are immunised at least 2 weeks before you attend university to ensure a full immune response. We therefore encourage students to take up the offer of immunisation from August 2016, before you start university. If this is not possible, then register with a GP as soon as possible at the beginning of the new academic term and request the MenACWY immunisation from your doctor.
For more information visit www.immunisationscotland.org.uk/menacwy. Or, you may prefer to telephone the NHS helpline on 0800 22 44 88 (text phone 18001 0800 22 44 88).
To register for the Medical Centre, please complete the application to register permanently with a general medical practice form and the new patient medical questionnaire. Staff from the Medical Centre will be in attendance at the Student ID Cards collection sessions on Sunday 11 September and Monday 12 September to answer any questions which you may have and to collect completed Medical Centre registration forms.
To register for the on-campus Dental Practice, simply print off and complete the attached Dental Practice registration form, and bring this with you when you come to Stirling. Staff from the Dental Practice will be in attendance on Sunday 11 September and Monday 12 September in the Crush Hall of the Pathfoot building to answer any questions which you may have, and to collect completed Dental Practice registration forms. In addition, please note the following important information:
Changes in April 2016 to NHS regulations now mean, to register with theUniversity Dental Service, you must have a Dental Examination. Our staff will be available on the above days and at the medical centre to give you a suitable time to carry out this short procedure. Dental Examinations in Scotland are free, but if this short examination is not carried out, you will not be entitled to receive daily NHS Dental Emergency Cover.
