Staying healthy and protecting yourself from preventable illness while you are studying at Victoria University of Wellington is important.

It is recommended that all students are fully immunised including against measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), meningococcal ACYW, meningococcal B and pertussis (whooping cough).

The varicella immunisation is also recommended for students who have not had chicken pox the disease or have not already completed a course of the varicella immunisation.

The measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunisation is free for domestic students.

There is a cost for the meningococcal ACYW, meningococcal B, pertussis and varicella immunisations.

If you are not able to have these immunisations before arriving on campus, you can arrange to get them at Student Health, ideally during Orientation Week.

To book an appointment with Student Health, call +64 4 463 5308 or visit the Mauri Ora or Te Taunaki reception.
