Immunisations for all TSHS Year 7 students on Wednesday 1st March 2017
 
 
“New laws require the school principal to disclose student and parent information for eligible Year 7 students to the school immunisation provider if requested. This information will enable the school immunisation provider to determine those who have and have not consented, and directly follow-up with parents of students who have not returned a consent card. This direct follow-up ensures all parents are offered the opportunity for their child to participate in this important school health program. It may also assist you in making decisions about your child’s immunisation needs.
 
Parents who have indicated ‘No to Vaccination’ will not be followed up by the provider.
 
Gladstone Regional Council is providing free vaccinations for all Year 7
Students, on 1st March 2017 as part of Queensland Health’s annual School Immunisation Program.
 
All Year 7 students are being offered free vaccinations as recommended on the National Immunisation
 
Program to protect against human papillomavirus (HPV) and diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough).
 
The vaccinations will be conducted by a team of authorised registered nurses and/or a medical practitioner.
 
A consent pack has been given to your child to bring home. Please read the information booklet carefully, sign the consent card and return the consent card to the school by 13th February 2017 or as soon as possible.
 
Parents are encouraged to ensure their children have breakfast on the morning of vaccination.
