A reminder that the Year 7 Immunisations are next Thursday 21st of February!

All Year 7 students are being offered free vaccinations as recommended by the National Immunisation Program to protect against human papillomavirus (HPV) and diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough). These vaccinations will be conducted by a team of registered nurses.

A consent pack would have been given to your child to be returned last week. If there is concern regarding nervousness of your child prior to vaccination please contact Council and ask to speak to the immunisation team. If it is suitable, it can be arranged that they are vaccinated before the immunisation clinic starts. Parents are encouraged to ensure their children have breakfast on the morning of vaccination and reminded to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

If your child misses the school immunisation day, they can still be vaccinated at a Moreton Bay Regional Council Community Immunisation clinic – please visit: www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/immunisation.
