Please note that the school based immunisation program, previously offered to Year 7 students, will be delivered in Year 8 starting in 2014.

In the 2013 school based immunisation program, all male students in Years 8, 9 and 10 will be offered the Human Papilloma (HPV) vaccine series, Gardasil to protect them against developing a range of cancers and diseases. If your son is eligible for this vaccine, you will receive information and a consent form via your son's school bag in early February 2013.

If your child is in Year 7 in 2013, they will receive their school vaccines in 2014 when they are in Year 8.

Please be assured that all children will be provided an opportunity to access the school based vaccines during the program shift.

If you require any further information, please contact the Central Immunisation Clinic on 9321 1312 during office hours.

Thank you
