Meningitis ACWY
First time University entrants under the age of 25 are advised to be vaccinated against Meningitis ACWY, prior to coming to Heriot Watt University. If you have not had this before coming to University, then you can attend the University Health Centre to arrange GP registration, and book an appointment to have this vaccination.
Updated advice received from the Scottish Government recommends that students under the age of 25 who have never received a dose of Meningitis C vaccine, or received the vaccine before the age of 10, should now receive the Meningitis ACWY vaccine to provide the best possible protection for this age group.
Registered students under the age of 25 that fall into the criteria above, who wish to have the Meningitis ACWY vaccine should contact the University Health Centre to request an appointment with the Practice Nurse to have this vaccine. For more information, visit or

We operate an appointment reminder service. You will receive a text message reminding you of your appointment 24hrs before.

Please inform us at once if you change your address or mobile number.


Also, please note that updating your details with University administration will not update your records at our practice.
