Meningitis ACWY Vaccine at Llanishen Pharmacy
On 3 Fidlas Road, Llanishen, Cardiff, South Glamorgan, CF14 0LW

Meningitis ACWY Vaccine

Meningitis is passed from person to person who are in close contact via nasal or throat droplets, for example by coughing, sneezing or kissing. The meningitis ACWY vaccination protects you against infection from the A, C, W and Y types of bacteria.

How it is given: The meningitis ACWY vaccination is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different types of the bacteria that cause meningococcal disease: A, C, W and Y.

How long does it last? A booster dose is recommended after five years for those travellers who are at risk of the disease again. For Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages, evidence of vaccination is required every five years for a visa application.

Side effects: The ACWY vaccine can cause mild side effects, such as redness and swelling at the injection site and tiredness. Some people also report having a high temperature as a result of the injection.

Cost: £40

Appointments preferable (Call 02920 759667 or Email cp602300a@wales.nhs.uk) Walk-ins also available but may be refused during busy periods of business.
