Immunisation Program at School
This year, Brisbane City Council will be providing free vaccinations for all Year 8 and Year 10 students on Tuesday 24 March, Wednesday 6 May and Tuesday 27 October, as part of the Queensland Health School Immunisation Program.
Year 8 and Year 10 students are eligible to receive the following vaccines:
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) – a 3 dose vaccine given to Year 8 students only
Chickenpox – a 1 dose vaccine given to Year 8 students only
Boostrix – a 1 dose vaccine given to both Year 8 and Year 10 students
Your child will receive consent forms to take home. If you wish for your child to take part in the School Immunisation Program, please ensure that you fill in the forms correctly and return to the College by Wednesday 11 February. Failure to return the forms to school on time may result in your child missing out on important vaccinations.
