Students in Year 9 are now being offered vaccines to protect against Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio and Meningitis (DTP/MenACWY). Students in Year 8 are also being offered the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.
Vaccination UK, the school aged vaccination provider, is continuing to visit schools across NEL and offer these vaccines. Parents will need complete the online e-consent form https://www.schoolvaccination.uk/e-consent-forms (one for each child) so their child can be vaccinated.
If a child misses their school clinic, parents can contact Vaccination UK for information on catch-up clinics across NEL. For more information visit https://www.schoolvaccination.uk/catch-up-clinics
