Year 10 Meningococcal Immunisations

The Health Department will be providing free meningococcal shots to all Year 10 students in the last week of term 2.

A form is being distributed now to all students that provides information about the immunisation and also contains a consent form for parents to complete.

The forms need to be signed and returned to school ASAP, either saying YES they agree for their child to have the immunisation or NO if they do not wish them to have it. Whatever the answer is, the form needs to be signed and returned to school ASAP.

The immunisation is free and is not compulsory, but highly recommended.

If any parent has any enquiries regarding the immunisation they should contact the Child and Adolescent Community Health Office on 9426 9441 or 0405 657 994.

Spare copies can be obtained from the main admin office at school.
