FROM COLLEGE NURSE Adele Cutbush
Dear Parents of Year 7 Students,
Each year NSW Health works with Waverley College to offer the vaccines recommended for adolescents. In 2018, the following vaccinations will be offered to Year 7 students:
- Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine (two dose course)
- Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine as a booster dose
The Parent Information Kits for all Year 7 students will be distributed this week at the college. Please complete these consent forms as soon as possible so your son can return the document to the Health Centre by the end of this week. The first scheduled date for the Public Health Immunisation team visit is Tuesday the 10th of April, 2018 (Week 11).
Please note that the physical card must be returned. Public Health will not accept any electronic/emailed or scanned copies. Parental/guardian consent is required for students to be vaccinated. Parents/guardians who wish to withdraw their consent for any reason may do so by phoning the Public Health Unit directly on (02) 9382 8333
Thank you for your assistance and support to ensure the success of this important public health program. If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to email the Health Centre: firstname.lastname@example.org
