Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions, including remote learning, the Meningococcal ACWY vaccination program that was originally scheduled for 10 August 2020, is now being conducted at school on Tuesday, 13 October 2020.
The following vaccines will be offered on this day:
- Year 10 Male and Female students – NIMENRIX (Meningococcal ACWY) 1 dose only
These vaccinations are funded as part of the Victorian Secondary School Vaccination Program. Should your child miss out on starting their vaccination course this year they may not be eligible to receive them for free in subsequent years.
Parent information packs were sent home in July. If you did not receive one, please collect one from the school office.
ALL relevant sections of the consent card must be completed, signed and returned to the school even if your child is NOT being vaccinated.
To consent to your child being vaccinated please tick and sign the relevant YES sections of the consent card in blue or black pen. If you DO NOT wish to have your child vaccinated or if your child has already been vaccinated, please tick the relevant NO section on the consent card. All cards must be returned to the school by Monday 12 October 2020. Please return the card to the school even if your child is not being vaccinated.
Please ensure that your child is wearing their sports uniform or a short sleeve shirt on the day of vaccinations (without too many layers underneath), this will enable a smooth vaccination process.
If you have any enquiries about the program or your child’s vaccinations, please contact Wodonga Council’s Immunisation Team on 1800 655 360.
