Secondary School Vaccinations in 2018 -“ Year 10 students
The Secondary School Vaccine Program offers a free vaccine to 10 students to provide protection against:
Meningococcal A, C, W, Y -“ one dose for year 10 students
The City of Ballarat immunisation service may contact you about the Secondary School Vaccine Program. Schools are authorised to provide basic parent/guardian contact details to local councils for this purpose.
Additionally, the Commonwealth government is funding vaccinations for all children under 20 years who missed scheduled vaccines. If students have missed vaccines, either in childhood or adolescence, and require catch-up vaccines, they should speak with their immunisation provider. (ie. local council or GP).
At St Patrick’s College the date booked for year 10 students to receive their vaccine is:
Monday June 18
Students received the immunization consent cards earlier in the year and were asked to return them to the college. If the card has not been returned, please do so as soon as possible. If the card has been misplaced a new card can be obtained from the student reception desk in the Edmund Rice Centre.
