Years 7 & 8 Immunisation Program 2019

The Department of Health is offering vaccinations to both Year 7 and Year 8

students in 2019. This will occur over two sessions.


Previously the diptheria, tetanus and pertussis (dTpa) and Human Papilloma (HPV) vaccines were offered in Year 8 only.


From 2020 onwards, the program will routinely be offered to students in Year 7 only.


The Department of Health Immunisation Nurses will be visiting the College to administer the first round of vaccines to Year 8 students on Wednesday 13 March. Consent forms and information package will be sent home with your child soon.


Year 7 first round vaccines will take place on Monday 20 May.
