Immunisation Notice


The College has received information from Kernow Health regarding HPV vaccinations planned for all Year 8 girls and boys and all Year 9 girls. Girls aged 12-13 in school years 8 and 9 are offered the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination and boys in year 8 are now being offered this as part of the NHS childhood immunisation programme. The vaccine protects against HPV related cancers such as cervical cancer in women and throat and neck cancers in both men and women; it is offered at schools in England as a course of 2 injections. In this first year of delivery for boys, they will receive their first dose in year 8 and second dose the following year, which is consistent with the HPV vaccination programme for girls. These will take place in the College on Wednesday 25th September 2019. Letters explaining the immunisation programme will be emailed to parents today; these include details on how to access the online consent form https://www.kernowimmunisations.co.uk/SecondarySchool which must be completed no later than Thursday 19th September 2019. Please note any student without consent will not be immunised.
