Get vaccinations sorted at the UCSA Summer Starter Expo!

This year UC and UCSA has partnered with Te Whatu Ora | Health New Zealand to provide FREE Meningococcal vaccinations for students.
UC strongly recommends the vaccination of all students.
Young people are particularly vulnerable to Meningococcal Disease and its potentially devastating effects, including Meningitis and Septicaemia, which strike fast and can be deadly. Long-term effects can include limb amputation, hearing loss, brain injury and permanent skin scarring if not diagnosed and treated in time.
Diagnosis can be difficult as symptoms can often mimic those of the common cold.

Te Whatu Ora | Health New Zealand’s vaccination drop-in clinic will be located in Bentleys (located in Haere-roa, above the Foundry) between 10am – 2pm on Thursday 29 February.
The clinic will also offer free HPV and MMR immunisations. These vaccinations are in the childhood immunisation schedule, but you may have missed out on them. Check your online health portal or ask your GP if you’re not sure.
If you have any questions you can chat to the Te Whatu Ora team who will have a stall located in Haere-roa on the day
