Year 9 Vaccinations (ACWY/Td/IPV)

As a result of a continuing increase in the number of cases of Meningococcal W (MenW) disease over recent years, the MenACWY vaccine is being offered to Year 9 students in schools. At the same time as receiving this vaccination, your child will receive their final, routine ‘teenage booster’ of Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio.  One injection will be given in each arm.

Older teenagers and young adults are at risk of getting meningitis and septicaemia from MenW. Meningococcal bacteria can cause meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning). Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio are serious diseases that can affect the nervous system, breathing and heart.

The most common mild side effects of the vaccinations include redness, tenderness or swelling at the injection site, fever, fatigue, nausea, muscle aches or headache. Paracetamol may be given to ease a fever or discomfort resulting from a vaccination.

The school nursing team will be with us from 8.30am - 1.10pm on Wed 12 June 2019 to give vaccinations to all students in Year 9 for whom parental consent has been received.  Students will be collected from their lesson and taken to the main hall by Mrs Anderson.

Consent forms will be sent home with students in tutor time after Easter 2019. The information contained is confidential in nature and the forms must be returned in a sealed envelope to the confidential drop box outside H6/The Hub.
