Yr 7 and 10 Catch up vaccination

Dear Parents/Carers,


NSW Adolescent Catch-up Vaccination Program 2020 for all Year 7 and 10 students.


An additional vaccination clinic will be conducted in our school for any Year 7 or 10 students who missed a vaccination during 2020.


The vaccination clinics will be conducted on Tuesday, 10th November 2020.


Year 7 students will be offered a catch-up of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and/or Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (dTpa) vaccine.


Year 10 students will be offered a catch-up of Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) Vaccine.


Please ensure that your child eats breakfast on the day of the school vaccination clinic.


Parents/guardians who wish to withdraw consent for any reason may do so by writing to the school Principal or phone the school. The Procedure for Withdrawal of Consent is available on the NSW Health website at


Please note that students who commence the HPV vaccination in school clinics in Year 7 but do not complete the course during the school year may be offered catch-up doses at school in Year 8. Students who have their first HPV dose at their GP will be advised to complete the course with their GP. Year 10 students who had handed in their vaccination cards during Year 10 who haven’t had their vaccination in 2020 will be offered their vaccine in year 11 during 2021.


A Record of Vaccination will be provided to each student vaccinated at each clinic. You should ensure that this record is kept for future reference. Please do not assume that your child has been vaccinated if you do not receive this Record of Vaccination. Vaccination records will be uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) to provide a complete immunisation history for your child.


Should you have any further questions or comments regarding this program please call the Immunisation Team on 9840 3603 or call Mrs Achar in the Library at Glenwood High School on 9629 9577.


Kind regards,
