NSW Vaccination Program

Each year NSW Health works in partnership with schools to offer the vaccines recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) for adolescents as part of the school vaccination program.

In 2019 the following vaccines will be offered:

Year 7 students

·         Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine as a booster dose for all students

·         Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine

2 dose course (at least 6 months apart)

Year 8 students

·    Gardasil 9

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, 2nd dose to any Year 8 male and female student who commenced the course in Year 7 (2018), but didn’t complete it

·    No year 8 student can commence HPV in the school program but the vaccine is provided free at the GP

Year 10 students

Meningococcal ACWY Vaccine as a single dose

Parent Information Kits that include an information sheet, consent form and privacy statement will be sent home to parents/guardians.  To consent to the vaccination of their child, parents/guardians are advised to:

  • Read all the information provided
  • Complete the consent form, including signing their name next to the vaccine/s they would like their child to receive
  • Return the completed consent form to their child’s school
  • Ensure that their child eats breakfast on the day of the school vaccination clinic

Please note that students who commence HPV vaccination in school clinics in Year 7 but do not complete the course during the school year may be offered catch-up doses at school in Year 8.  Students who have any HPV does at their GP will be advised to complete the course with their GP.

Parents/guardians who wish to withdraw their consent for any reason may do so by writing to the school Principal or by phoning the school.  The Procedure for Withdrawal of Consent is available on the NSW Health website at www.health.nsw.gov.au/immunisation

To improve vaccination completion, students will be opportunistically offered any missed doses throughout the year where possible.

A Record of Vaccination will be provided to each student vaccinated at each clinic as a physical card.  Parents/guardians should ensure that this record is kept for future reference and should not assume that their child has been vaccinated if they do not receive this Record of Vaccination.
