2019 Final Visit
Hunter New England nurses will return to the College on Friday 25 October to complete the second dose of the HPV Vaccine for Year 7 students. Additionally:
- Any 2019 Year 8 student who commenced HPV vaccination while in Year 7 and are yet to finish the course of HPV (and who has not received any from their local doctor) can still receive this on the day at school (as long as 6 mths have elapsed).
- Any Year 10 student who returned a signed consent card for Meningococcal ACWY vaccine earlier in the year but did not receive this in 2019 (and who has not received it from their local doctor) can still receive this on the day at school.
If your child has not received both HPV Vaccines before the end of 2019 they can be caught up in 2020 school visits. Also any student who has missed school program vaccines or any childhood vaccines can receive these vaccines from their local doctor.
A Record of Vaccination is given to each student for each vaccination. Parents/Caregivers should ensure that this record is kept for future reference and should not assume that their child has been vaccinated if they do not receive this Record of Vaccination.
If you have not done so already please return your consent form to the office prior to the day. For further information visit the NSW Ministry of Health website at: http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/immunisation/Pages/schoolvaccination.aspx or http://www.hpvvaccine.org.au/
