Postponement of Routine School Vaccination Program in 2021 (For Year 7 and Year 10 students)

Due to COVID-19, the HPV, dTpa and meningococcal vaccination program has been postponed for 2021 and will recommence in 2022.  All students who missed out on these vaccinations will be offered catch-up vaccinations in 2022.

In the interim, parents may choose to take their eligible children to their GP for a free HPV or dTpa vaccine (Year 7) or Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (Year 10), noting that GPs may charge a consultation fee. In these circumstances, parents should contact the School to withdraw their consent for vaccination at school to ensure that a child is not vaccinated twice.

NSW Health have updated their website to reflect these last minute changes, further information can be found here www.health.nsw.gov.au/schoolvaccination.

For more information, please contact the Health Centre on 9581 6023 or email healthcentre@trinity.nsw.edu.au.
