In Year 8, the girls will be offered the Human Papilloma Virus immunisation (HPV). This is two injections six months apart and protects against cervical cancer and genital warts. This is given by the school nurse team across Hampshire.
In Year 10, both boys and girls will be offered Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio immunisations and also Meningitis ACWY. This involves having two injections on the same day. The vaccines boost the immunisations you got as a child.These are given to pupils in North Hampshire schools by the school nurse team and by GPs in the rest of Hampshire.
Your school nurse may come to talk to you about these immunisations. You will be given a consent form, which needs to be signed by your parent or guardian and returned to school.
For any questions you may have about these immunisations, please contact your school nurse team or family doctor.
