The vaccination clinics will be conducted at Glenwood High School for all Year 10 students on:

A Parent Information Kit is available which includes an information sheet, consent form and privacy statement. To consent to the vaccination of your child, parents/guardians are advised to:
read all the information provided;
complete the consent form, including signing your name next to each of the vaccine/s you would like your child to receive;
return the completed consent form to the Library at Glenwood High School;
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 www.health.nsw.gov.au/immunisation.
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.
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 Jones in the Library at Glenwood High School on 9629 9577.
