Year 8 And 9 Immunisations

The Immunisation team will be in school on Monday 16 March to offer all Year 9 pupils a booster of the Diptheria/Tetanus and Polio vaccine, this will complete the course they started as babies.

In addition the Meningitis ACWY vaccine will be offered.

As part of a national MMR (Measles, mumps, rubella) catch up programme Year 8 pupils who have not received the full course of MMR will be invited to receive the vaccine on this day. Information packs and consent forms will be sent home with pupils nearer the time.

Further changes to the UK routine Immunisation schedule mean that for the first time Year 8 boys as well as girls are now being invited to receive the HPV vaccine (Humanpapilloma Virus) – this will take place in school on the 15 and 16 June. Again further information and consent forms will be sent home nearer the time.
