Dear Parents & Caregivers of Year 10 students,

NSW Adolescent Vaccination Program 2020

In 2020, all Year 10 students will be offered a single dose of the Meningococcal ACWY vaccine through free school-based vaccination clinics.

The vaccination clinic will be held on Tuesday 16 June, 2020. Any student who misses the vaccination on this day is able to have a catch-up vaccination on Wednesday 9 September, 2020.

Students will receive their NSW School Vaccination Program envelope this week during Homeroom. It contains information regarding the program and a consent form. Please read through the information and complete the consent form using black or blue pen only. The consent form needs to be returned to the Student Foyer by Monday 1 June.

Please remind your child to eat breakfast on the morning of the vaccination, and to bring their own water bottle with them. It is important for students receiving vaccinations to drink plenty of fluids before and after each vaccination. Students are to wear their full College sport uniform on the day of the vaccination.

Following the vaccination, your child will be given a Record of Vaccination card to return to you. Please retain this for your records and inform your GP that the vaccination has been administered to your child.

Additional information regarding the program can be found on the NSW Government Health website www.health.nsw.gov.au/immunisation. Should you have any further questions or comments regarding this program, please call me at the College or call Health (Western Sydney Local Health District) on 9840 3603.

Yours sincerely

Ms. Julijana Blazekovic
Leader of Learning – Administration
