2020-2021 Adolescent Programme 

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, this years programmes were delayed until January 2021.

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 on-line booking system fUSION, which allows parents to consent for their child's vaccination(s) and book an appointment slot for their vaccination(s) at school.  If schools are unable to accommodate we will be offering community venues for parents to access using the fUSION system.

 

Fusion is an on-line booking system used to assist parents in accessing appointments for their childs vaccinations.  Fusion is currently being used to assist with school vaccination programmes during COVID-19 so that vaccinations can be administred in a school settings adhering to social distancing and Risk Assessments.

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.
