DTP and Meningitis ACWY Vaccination
Year 9 - Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio (DTP) and Meningitis ACWY Vaccination
Your child is now due their booster 3-in-1 Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (DTP) vaccination and their Meningitis ACWY vaccination. Vaccinations will take place in school on Tuesday 3rd May 2022 (Next week)
All children need five doses of tetanus, diphtheria and polio vaccines to build up and maintain immunity. The fifth dose is due now.
Meningitis ACWY is not routinely given until Year 9 in school. Most children will have received an earlier dose of Meningitis C (not ACWY). This vaccination provides additional protection against the strains A, W & Y that are most commonly seen in this age group.
You will receive a text message with the link to the online consent form. It can also be found on our school website.
Please complete the consent form even if you do not wish your child to receive the vaccination or if they have received it elsewhere.
