Each year NSW Health works in partnership with schools to offer the vaccines recommended by  the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) for adolescents as part of the school vaccination program.

In 2021 the following vaccines will be offered to Year 7 students: Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine - Gardasil 9 and Diohtheria-Tetanus-Pertnssis vaccine - dToa Boostrix.

Parents who wish to withdraw their consent for any reason may do so by writing to the school Principal or phoning the school. The procedure for Withdrawal of Consent is available on the NSW Health website at consent.aspx.

A Record of Vaccination will beprovided to each student vaccinated at each clinic as a paper card.

Details about vaccinations given at school will also be uploaded to the Australian  Immunisation Register (AIR) to support complete vaccination histories, which can be downloaded via MyGov.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the SWSLHD Public Health Unit on 1300 055 066.
