Immunisations 

Our school-based Immunisation Program is unfortunately being suspended for Term 1. All Nurse Immunisers who work in the program are being deployed into the COVID-19 Vaccination Teams and will be heavily involved in the initial roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccinations. We apologise for the inconvenience and are optimistic that we will resume schedule for Term 2. We will work with Child and Adolescent Health Services (CAHS) to arrange for Term 1 catchups to take place as soon as possible. As it stands, we will continue with scheduled dates for Year 10s to be immunised in Term 2. Year 7 Round 1 dates will need to be rescheduled during Terms 2 and 3.  

For the time being, we encourage Parents/Guardians to return consent forms ASAP so the nursing team can prepare for their visits when the time comes. Please rest assured that your child will not miss out on their vaccinations however GP and Community Health clinics are another option for Parents if you would like your child vaccinated sooner rather than later. 

Please remember that all the updates we have sent you so far are available to read via our News page on our website, accessible by clicking here.

Kind regards,
