A letter and consent form has been sent home today to parents and carers of Year 9 students to inform you of the ACWY vaccination due on Tuesday 24th March.
The immunisation team has asked students being vaccinated have breakfast and wear short sleeved shirts on the day.
The immunisation team will also be catching up with students in Year 10, 11, 12, 13 who have not yet been immunised. If you are not sure if your child has had this vaccination, please contact either your doctors' surgery or the NHS Immunisation Service.
Also if a student misses the immunisation session in school for booster and meningitis, these vaccinations will be available through the NHS vaccination drop in sessions; https://www.sussexcommunity.nhs.uk/services/immunisation/teenage-booster-meningitis-acwy.htm.
Please make sure you have returned the signed consent form by the 7th February at the latest.
