Dear Parents and Carers,

The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Immunisation Team is visiting Waverley College on Tuesday, 27 October 2020.

The visit is for Year 7 students to receive the second dose of HPV. We will also be providing catch-up vaccinations for any students who previously missed out on doses.

Year 7 can watch this video to find out what to expect.

Students are advised to eat breakfast on the vaccination day. Morning tea, lunch and extra fluids are also recommended on particularly hot days.
