The Hertfordshire Immunisation Team carry out school-age immunisations.
- The nasal flu immunisation is offered to all children in Reception to Year 5 and all year groups in special schools.
- Children starting secondary school are screened to assess the need for immunisation against TB (BCG programme).
- All girls in year 8 are offered the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) immunisation which is a course of 2 injections.
- All year 9 students are offered a booster immunisation against Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio and Meningitis C.
Before any immunisations take place, an email is sent to parents with a link to an online consent form. It’s essential that you complete the form for your child to be included in the immunisation programme.
