Year 8 Immunisation
15 March 2018
Year 8 Vaccination Program
The Department of Health is offering a free immunisation program for Year 8 students in 2018. The program offers a booster dose of the diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (dTpa) vaccine, and a vaccine for protection against human papillomavirus (HPV). The new vaccine provides better protection against infectious diseases and some cancers in just two doses. Students in Year 8 will receive an information pack in Term 1 containing details of the program and a consent form for parents to sign. Parents must sign and return the consent form for the children to participate in this free program.
