Dear Parents & Caregivers,
In 2019, all Year 10 students will be offered the following vaccination through the free school-based vaccination clinic:
- A single dose of the Meningococcal ACWY vaccine
The vaccination clinics will be conducted at the College on the date below. If students miss the dose, they may be able to receive a catch up vaccination during the next scheduled Year 7 vaccination clinic on Wednesday September 18. A notification will be sent to students and parents, if this catch up vaccination is possible.
Tuesday, June 25 2019 – MenACWY
Students would have received the NSW School Vaccination Program envelope containing information regarding the program, and a consent form. Please complete the consent form using black or blue pen only, and have your child return it to the Student Pastoral Foyer by Tuesday 9 April.
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 vaccination day.
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.
