Consent packs for vaccinations from NHS Lothian are out now for pupils in S3 (and in S4 – S6 who have not yet received their vaccinations).
Every year, pupils in S3 are offered the Teenage Booster to complete their lifelong protection, through Routine immunisations against tetanus, diphtheria and polio. Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.
In addition to the Teenage Booster vaccination, all S3 pupils are recommended a Meningitis ACWY vaccination. This protects against several strains of meningitis. Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.
Please read the letter in the consent pack which you have been sent, discuss the vaccinations with your child and return completed and signed consent forms to school by 18 December 2020.
