Meningitis Vaccination (MenACWY)
College Vaccination Programme - Spring 2017
The nurses will be administering the immunisation on the college premises from 9.30am to 2.30pm. They will be on site until 3pm in case there are any adverse reactions. Each student will be asked to wait for around 10 minutes before going back to lesson/leaving.
Students will be asked to sign a consent form. It is not necessary to have your parents’ consent for this vaccination but it is hoped that you will discuss the matter as a family and come to a shared decision.
The vaccination programme will be run as a drop in service and you should attend during a free period, break or lunch (wherever possible). Please consider attending at the beginning of the day when it will be much quieter.
If you are worried, or need any further information, please see Karen Cooper, Student Health & Welfare Co-Ordinator in room 821.
