Be on the TEAM: Meningitis Study


First Year students: you have the opportunity to take part in a meningitis vaccine study run by Teenagers Against Meningitis!

All students who take part will receive two doses of a MenB vaccine, a licensed vaccine that you would not otherwise receive which can reduce your risk of meningitis. 

The study involves receiving the vaccination and giving a throat swab through three study visits over 12 to 18 months. Everything takes place at college. Because it takes place over 12-18 months, students must be returning to Itchen next year.

If you would like to take part, visit the Main Hall on Review Day, Monday 18 March and Tuesday 19 March. If you would like more information or if you have any questions, please visit Student Services or
