In Year 9, 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 Hampshire schools by the school nurse team.

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.
