Year 8 Immunisations

This year sees the national program resume to the routine immunisation schedule offered to all year 8 students.

All students will be offered a booster dose of diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (dTpa), a chickenpox vaccine (varicella), and a three dose course of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, provided across three terms.

Consent packs have gone out to all year 8 students and if you haven't returned these we encourage you to do so before the end Term 1.

The first dose is scheduled for the 20 & 21 May 2014.

The Western Australia Department of Health have developed a video which highlights the importance of immunisation in protecting children and communities against vaccine-preventable diseases.
