Influenza or flu as it is commonly known reappears every winter, usually over a short period of a few weeks, so a lot of people get ill around the same time, as it is highly contagious. If you do have flu then your immune system becomes increasingly vulnerable to catching other serious illnesses, which can be prevented by having a jab ideally before the flu season. Because the virus is constantly changing, it is essential you immunize yourself every year to protect against the latest strains of the virus, preferably before the flu starts to circulate.

ACWY Vax is a meningitis vaccine that contains inactivated extracts of Neisseria meningitides bacteria types A, C, W135 and Y, which are bacteria that cause meningitis. It is known as a quadrivalent vaccine. The vaccine works by provoking the body’s immune response to these bacteria, without causing the disease. The immune system produces different antibodies for each foreign organism it encounters. This establishes a pool of antibodies that helps protect the body from various different diseases.
When the body is exposed to foreign organisms, such as, the immune system produces antibodies against them. Antibodies help the body recognise and kill the foreign organisms.
