Year 7 Immunisation program:
On Thursday 3rd May, Year 7 students will receive their first vaccinations for the year: HPV (Gardasil 9) and Boostrix (diphtheria, tetanus, & whooping cough).
Students are asked to wear sport uniform on the day, for easy access to the upper arm.
Vaccinations will be given in the Health Room in the SAC and students will remain in the room for 20 minutes afterwards for monitoring. In the unlikely event of a reaction to the vaccination, students will move to the sickbay and parents/guardians contacted should the student be unable to return to class.
The second and final vaccination day for the year will be on Thursday 29th November.
If your child will not be at school on the 3rd May, you are asked to contact Barwon Health on 4215 6962 to make alternative arrangements.
