ECCH School Immunisation Team
The School Immunisation Team provides vaccines in schools in support of the National Childhood Immunisation Programme.
The team consists of experienced qualified nurses and administrators who deliver the vaccinations within the school environment.
Your child will be provided with information about the forthcoming event by being given an information leaflet and consent form which they need to take home.
On the day of the vaccination please ensure that your child has something to eat and drink before to coming to school and wears either a short sleeved shirt or a vest under their shirt (girls).
The consent form must be signed, by a parent or guardian with parental consent, and returned to school. No vaccination can take place without a signed consent form.
The vaccinations will then take place within a suitable school venue in a calm and supportive environment.
The planned immunisation schedule for 2018-2019 is:
Year 9 Meningitis ACWY/Td/IPV 29th & 30th April 2019
Year 10 MMR Catch-ups Year 10 (only those who have not had two doses) session date 6th & 7th March 2019
