2023 Secondary School Immunisation Program catch-ups
Secondary school immunisations are provided to students to reduce their risk of contracting preventable diseases and some cancers. Health advice regarding immunisations recommends students receive the following:
2023 Year 7
- Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) (one dose)
- Human papillomavirus (HPV) (2 doses 6 months apart)
2023 Year 10
- Meningococcal A,C,W,Y (one dose)
Due to COVID-19 related interruptions to school-based learning, there are a number of students in years 7 to 12 who may have missed these important vaccines. This puts students at an increased risk of illness.
If your child missed out on their school-based vaccinations, please speak to your GP or local council immunisation service about how they can catch up.
To check if your child is due for any vaccines, refer to their immunisation history statement on the Australian Immunisation Register, using your MyGov account.
If your child is aged over 14, they may need to access their immunisation history statement themselves, through their own MyGov account or the Medicare mobile app.
