Meningitis awareness

Warwick has been successful in gaining the new Meningitis Aware Recognition Mark for Universities, awarded by the charity Meningitis Now.

In the UK every university could experience at least one case of meningitis or meningococcal disease (meningitis and septicaemia) amongst its students within the first term.

Before new students arrive we’ve been encouraging them to get vaccinated, and at the start of term we’re working with the Students’ Union and the Health Centre to raise awareness.

The accreditation also recognises the behind the scenes work that goes into being prepared to support students if a case occurs.

Learn more about the diseases and vaccination on the Meningitis Now website.
