Year 7 Immunisation Program
The NSW Ministry of Health offers all school students free vaccinations recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). These vaccines are important and protect students through to adulthood.
At SCEGGS all Year 7 Students will be offered the following vaccines on the following dates:
- Visit 1: Wednesday 26 February
- Visit 2: Friday 6 November
Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine as a booster dose for all students
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine 2 dose course
Further information will be provided in 2020 Parent Information Packs and is also available now in many languages.
A Record of Vaccination Card will be given to the student at the time of each vaccination at each school clinic. Please keep these cards for your records and provide a copy to your local doctor. The School does not keep vaccination records.
If a student is absent for any of the clinics, they will have the opportunity to catch up at the next school visit, or, if you wish, you can organise the catch-up vaccination with your doctor.
When available, all Year 7 students will receive consent forms for completion. Only return the consent form if you wish your daughter to receive the vaccines.
Please note that the consent forms for Year 7 students will need a parent/guardian signature for each vaccine requested. The nurses will not be able to vaccinate any student if their form is not signed.
