Missed school immunisations – information for parent/carers
Please note the information below that the Leeds School Immunisation Team have asked us to share with all Year 8 and 9 families:
Public Health England’s (PHE) guidance currently states that all school age immunisations are suspended whilst the schools are closed but will be rescheduled. We are waiting for further details of what the rescheduled “catch up” will be. It is likely this will be done within schools or within community clinics but we do not know when this will happen. You do not need to do anything; the consent you have given will be carried forward. You will be contacted by a nurse if it is necessary to discuss any consent issues we have.
Missed immunisations are not available from your GP.
The outstanding immunisations affect some pupils in Year 9 (School Leaving Boosters) and the 2nd dose of HPV for all children in Year 8.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as they are unable to take phone calls at this time.
