Funded vaccines for all Year 7 and Year 10 students

Dear Parent/Guardian

Teams of specially trained registered nurses will be visiting your child’s school during Year 7 to offer funded vaccinations against serious preventable diseases.

What do you need to do?

Parents/Carers will be notified by email when Year 7 and 10 Immunisations will be held. Information regarding how to complete the online consent form will be included in the email. Steps include: 

  • Log into your Service NSW Account
  • Navigate to the NSW School Vaccination Program 
  • Select 'Provide Consent', and make sure to complete ALL fields. 
  • Read the parent information sheet and provide consent by ticking the boxes of the declaration statement

Year 7 students are scheduled to receive two vaccines: 

  • dTpa (Boostrix) diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis
  • HPV (Gardasil) human papilloamvirus

Year 10 students are scheduled to receive a single dose of: 

  • MenACWY (Nimenrix) meningococcal ACWY

Once the online consent form is completed, select 'Submit'. 

What if your child misses a vaccine? 

You won’t need to do anything because every effort will be made to catch-up missed vaccines at other clinics at your child’s school during that year, or the following year, when they are in Year 8.
