Who we are
Our Immunisation Administrative Team is made up of experienced practitioners who are highly skilled and experienced in coordinating the admin side of our immunisation programmes, liaising with schools over dates and answering phone calls from parents and directing as appropriate.
What we do
It’s important to protect your children against a number of dangerous infectious diseases.
The national immunisation programme means that diseases like polio have disappeared in the UK – this is only possible by maintaining the high immunisation rates for children and young people across our local communities.
Our team follows the national immunisation programme and offer vaccinations to protect against:
- Meningococcal ACWY
- School leavers booster of Diphtheria
- Tetanus and Polio (Td/IPV)
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
- MMR as required
We routinely offer:
|Reception and years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6||Nasal Flu||October – December|
|Year 9 girls and boys||Tetanus/Diphtheria/Polio and Meningitis ACWY||May- July|
|Year 9 girls and boys||MMR is offered if your child has not previously had 2 doses||May-July|
|Year 8 girls and boys||HPV (1st dose)||February- April|
|Year 9 girls (boys to be added in September 2020)||HPV (2nd dose)||February – April|
How to access the service
The immunisation programme is routinely delivered within schools. Our team sends consent forms home via school for parents/carers to complete and return to school. Children of secondary school age may be able to give their own consent for the immunisation if they can demonstrate they fully understand the benefits and risks.
Following each programme our team offer ‘catch up’ clinics – details of these will be sent home if required. If your child is not attending school or is unable to attend a clinic our team offer home visits and arrangements are made to offer the EHE appropriate immunisations.
