How does my child access the school immunisation program?

Schools provide parents and guardians with information regarding our visits to the school.  This includes consent cards provided and sent home via the child for the parent / guardian to sign and return to their school within a required timeframe.

Vaccinations will not be given to a child without a signed consent card. 

If information is not provided to you, contact your school. You can also download consent forms and disease information from the Department of Health and Human Services website.

What if my child misses their school vaccine?

If your child is unwell or absent on the immunisation day, you will receive communication providing details of our Immunisation Schedule with a date to have the missed vaccine(s) by. 

Vaccines are available at our Council Sessions, given by GP’s and other Immunisation Providers.
