2021-2022 Adolescent Programme 

The Adolescent programme for 2021/2022 will resume again in February 2022.

The proposed schedule for this to take place is as follows:

  • Year 8 – HPV and MMR (if required)
  • Year 9 are to be offered Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and Meningitis as per normal schedule alongside missed HPV/ MMR
  • Year 10 & Year 11 are to be offered any missing vaccinations - Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio, Meningitis ACWY, HPV and MMR

Where possible vaccination sessions will be offered at schools using an online booking system JABIT, which allows parents to consent for their child's vaccination(s) at school or within a clinic setting. If schools are unable to accommodate or vaccination(s) are missed then we will be offering community clinic venues for parents to access using the JABIT system.

 

 

The School Age Immunisation Service (SAIS) has been commissioned to offer all 12-15 year olds their first Covid-19 vaccination.  If your child has already received their first dose and is due a second, this will need to be arranged via your GP

Visits will be made to all Middle, Secondary and Special schools with pupils who are eligible.

Any student who has tested positive for Covid-19 will need to wait 28 days post positive result before they can receive the vaccination

The SAIS will be offering Walk-In Clinics to those students who missed the vaccination at school, you will be advised of this via a school communication

Forms must be completed by person(s) with PARENTAL RESPONSIBILTY

The person(s) with parental responsibility will usually, but not invariably be the child’s birth parents.  People with parental responsibility for the child include: the child’s mother; the child’s father if married to the mother at the child’s conception, birth or later; a legally appointed guardian; the local authority if the child is on a care order; or a person named in a residence order in respect of the child.  Fathers who have never been married to the child’s mother will only have parental responsibility if they acquired it through a court order or parental responsibility agreement. After the 30th November 2003 unmarried fathers have automatic parental responsibility for their children if they are named on the birth certificate. 

For a child born before the 30th November 2003, they can be re-registered and the father named on the birth certificate, after which the father will have automatic parental responsibility.
