School Immunisation Program

The third round of school immunisations is being conducted at Xavier on Thursday 10 September 2015.

The following vaccines will be offered on this day:

YEAR LEVEL VACCINES OFFERED

YEAR 7 MALE & FEMALE STUDENTS GARDASIL (HPV) DOSE 3

These vaccinations are funded on the National Immunisation Schedule. Should your child miss out on starting their vaccination course this year they will not be eligible to receive them for free in subsequent years.

Consent cards should have already been signed for these vaccinations earlier this year.

Parents/guardians who wish to withdraw their consent for any reason may do so by writing to the school Principal or 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.

If you have any enquiries about the program or your child’s vaccinations, please contact Wodonga Council’s Immunisation Team on 1800 655 360.
