Notice about HPV and DTP Men catchup vaccination opportunity for relevant Y9, Y10 and Y11 students

The NHS vaccination programme for HPV and DTP Men for some young people now in Years 9, 10 and 11 was disrupted in the summer term by the Covid-isolation regulations.

In response, the NHS School Nursing Immunisation Team will be in school next week providing the following catchup immunisation opportunities:

  •  HPV on Tues Sept 14th 
  • DTP Men ACWY on Fri Sept 17th

Your child will be offered an immunisation:

  • if you gave consent for your child to be immunised
  • and they did not receive it last year.

If this applies to your child, please ask them to wear a short sleeved shirt or a t-shirt under their school shirt and to ensure they have eaten breakfast on the day. Anxiety over the injection on an empty stomach could cause them to feel dizzy and light headed.

Please direct all queries about the immunisation programme to School Health on 0300 123 4607, Email : wcnt.immunisation@nhs.net
