Year 7 Vaccinations

The NSW Health Department will be providing vaccination for Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (dTpa) and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – dose 1 as part of the Adolescent School-Based Vaccination Programme. Only Year 7 boys who have returned the signed Consent Form (which have been posted to parents) will be immunised. Verbal approval or emails are not accepted by the NSW Department of Health Staff. Spare Parent Information Kits are available at the Health Centre.

The vaccinations will take place on:

Friday 19 Feb 2021, Term 1

A team of specially trained Registered Nurses will be visiting our School to administer the vaccine.  After students have been vaccinated, they will be given a Record of Vaccination to take home.

Please contact the School’s Senior Nurse, Tessa Mansfield, on 9581 6023 if you have any questions.
