Dear Parents,
 

School Based Immunisation at Toolooa SHS is the 18th March.

 
Tips for IMMUNISATIONS FOR 2015:  Please ensure that you child has had breakfast that morning and it is a good idea to discuss why it is important for your child to be having the immunisation.
 
The vaccinations are for the following students:
* Year 8 students - HPV (dose 1) & Varicella/Chickenpox
* Year 10 will be in May 2015 at the next clinic
 
What is the HPV vaccine?
It protects against the four types of human papillomavirus (HPV) that cause 70% of cervical cancers and 90% of genital warts.
If you need a new copy of the consent form or more information please go to http://www.health.qld.gov.au/immunisation/sbvp/consent.asp or click on the link Immunisation consent form or watch the video about HPV www.cervicalcancervaccine.org.au.
