In year 9, your child is offered 2 vaccinations. These are the Meningitis ACWY vaccine which helps to protect against Meningitis and Septicaemia and the DTP booster which helps to protect against Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio.

Young people may be offered the MMR vaccine to protect against Measles, Mumps and Rubella if they did not receive it when they were younger.

This is part of the NHS childhood immunisations programme. You can find more information about teenage immunisations here or vaccinations in general here.

Information about the vaccinations will be added to your child’s health record, including GP records and those held by the NHS.

Even if you do not wish your child to receive the vaccination(s) it is important to complete the refusal section of the consent form so that we are aware of your wishes.
