Community immunisation clinics

Catch-up vaccinations for secondary school students

Students who have missed their school vaccination: diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, human papillomavirus (HPV) and meningococcal ACWY can receive a catch-up vaccination at a Council community immunisation clinic, or at their local GP. Adolescents aged 15-19 years who missed the meningococcal ACWY vaccine at school are also eligible for a free vaccine.

A parent, carer or legal guardian will need to be present to consent to the vaccination and sign a consent card.
