GPs to vaccinate studentsAugust 29 2014

Guidance on Scotland’s Meningococcal C (Men C) catch up programme for first time university entrants is available.

NHS Circular PCA (M)(2014) 10 sets out the details of the scheme for GPs and also includes details of payment arrangements. The scheme is being introduced for first-time university students under the age of 25 as they are considered at increased risk of Men C disease.

New students should register with the GP practice and have the vaccine as soon as possible, ideally in freshers’ week. For individuals seeking vaccination after October 31, GP practices should consider whether there would be any benefit in giving the vaccine at that point.

Reimbursement will be paid under this scheme for Men C vaccinations given from July 1 2014 onward at a flat rate of £7.67 per immunisation.

This is the first year the scheme has been in operation and is targeting those who have not had any Men C vaccination since the age of 10. From 2017, the Circular says that university entrants will have received a dose of Men C vaccine routinely as part of their adolescent booster vaccines.
