Year 7 and 10 Immunisations
As part of the National Immunisation Program, Knox City Council’s immunisation team will be visiting your child’s school to provide free Meningococcal ACWY vaccine to all Year 10 students.
Meningococcal disease is rare but very serious and can quickly become life-threatening. Older teenagers and young adults are most likely to carry the bacteria and spread it to others.
In 2023, the recommended doses for each vaccine offered in Year 7 are as follows:
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – single dose
Diphtheria/Tetanus/Whooping Cough – single dose to boost previous child doses
Please open following link to Year 10 Secondary School Vaccine Program consent form. Please complete, sign and submit form by 5pm Friday 17th March.
Year 10 – Fairhills High School – Vaccine Consent Form
Year 7 – Fairhills High School – Vaccine Consent Form
The consent form must be completed and submitted electronically, regardless of whether the child is being vaccinated or not.
The Public Health and Wellbeing Regulations 2019 authorises secondary schools to provide their local council with parent/guardian contact information for any student scheduled to receive a vaccination. This information assists local councils to follow-up parents/guardians of students with incomplete or missing consent cards. Your school may provide this information to local council upon request.
If you have any questions, please contact Health Services on 9298 8165 or email email@example.com or visit https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/healthyliving/immunisation-in-secondary-schools
