The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District is due to attend Waverley College, next week on Tuesday, 16 August, 2022 for Year 10 routine school vaccinations.
The following vaccines are being offered to students in 2022:
|YEAR||VACCINE||NUMBER OF DOSES|
|Year 10||Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY)||1 dose|
Parent Information Kits which include an information sheet, consent form and privacy statement have been distributed to students to be taken home and signed.
These were distributed to all students in Year 10 in the house assemblies held on Friday, 22 July, 2022. If you wish for your child to receive school vaccinations please return your consent card to the Health Centre as soon as possible.
Please note, that any vaccine offered to students at school requires the signed consent of parents/carers. If the consent form is not returned by Tuesday, 16 August, 2022 then your child will not be able to receive the vaccination. Only the hard copy of the vaccination form is accepted (no scans or photocopies are accepted by NSW Health).
Consent may be withdrawn at any time. If you do not wish for your child to receive the MenACWY then do not return a signed vaccination form. Parents/carers who wish to withdraw consent may do so by writing or by phoning the school.
Should your child miss the upcoming clinic, they will be offered catch-up vaccination throughout the year where possible. If your child is due to receive catch-up vaccination in the school program but has received their dose with the GP, please inform the school as soon as possible to avoid any potential vaccination errors.
