The following table shows the dates for the 2023 School Vaccination Program.
|Year 7 – HPV Dose 1 + dTpa||Year 10 – MenACWY||Year 7 – HPV Dose 2|
|Wednesday, 1 March 2023||Monday, 5 June 2023||Tuesday, 19 September 2023|
Please be reminded that these clinics are run by the NSW Health Local Area Public Health Service. Parents/carers are more than welcome to email the Health Centre for any questions or enquiries about the vaccination days, however we do not have access to your child’s vaccination status. This can be found at the Australian Immunisation Record (AIR).
Parents/carers can refer to the Australian Immunisation Record (AIR) to check outstanding vaccines. The parent/carer is required to notify the school if their child has completed their course elsewhere to avoid any potential vaccination errors. Parents/carers can also withdraw up to 24 hours before a clinic if they have provided consent online. If the withdrawal of consent is within 24 hours of the clinic date, the parent/carer must notify the school directly.
Please note that the first clinic of 2023 was run on 1 March. This was for Year 7 HPV 1st dose and dTpa. If your child is in Year 7 and they were not at school or missed the vaccination because you did not complete the online consent form, then they will have a chance to be vaccinated in one of the next two clinics. Please ensure you have completed the online consent form before the clinic dates. Instructions on how to do this are in the previous Nurrunga article about Vaccination Consent Online.
