These will be on Tuesday 13th July. Please click on the following link to give your consent: https://www.nottinghamshireimmunisations.co.uk/Forms/DTP School code is NG122828.

Please read the leaflets below on general immunisation and Meningitis.

The NHS School Aged Immunisation Service would rather have a completed electronic consent form (see bottom of page for links) from parents however if consent is not completed, your son / daughter will be given the opportunity to self-consent.

The decision to have the vaccination is legally your son/daughter’s as long as they understand the reasons for the vaccination and the issues in giving consent.

A Nurse will make an assessment to determine whether your son/daughter is able to consent to vaccination themselves.

Vaccination will only go ahead if the nurse is satisfied that the answer to all the following questions is ‘yes’

  • Parental consent has been sought through school
  • No evidence of refusal from parent/carer
  • Young person presented for vaccination with no coercion
  • Has the young person read & understood the information relating to the specific vaccine?
  • Nurse discussed vaccination and implications with the young person.
  • Does the young person understand the side effects of the vaccination?
  • Young person asked –have they discussed the vaccine with their parents and is their parent in agreement with vaccination.
  • Has the young person made their decision without pressure?

If you do not want your child to be vaccinated please ensure you complete an electronic consent form to refuse each vaccination that is offered.

Annual School Vaccination Programme 2020-2021 – Parent Consent

Each year, students in year 8 and 9 students are offered three vaccinations which follow on from those their pre-school boosters.

These Vaccinations are – HPV (which protects against cancer) DIPT/P (which protects against Diptheria Tetanus and Polio) and ACWY (which protects against Meningitis.

We strongly urge all school children to take part in this programme. We have all recently seen how effective vaccines can be with the rolling out of the Covid-19 vaccinations and we feel that these childhood vaccinations are extremely important.

They take place across both year groups for both females and males and will be during the school day on specific dates in June and July of 2021. These dates will be confirmed nearer the time.

Students over the age of 13 can give their own consent but so everyone is fully informed we would ask parents to give consent using the links shown below and read the attached letters and leaflets.
