COVID19 service update:
The service has been paused in line with school closures.The service is aware of all schools and children who have not received their scheduled immunisations this academic year and will follow advice from Public Health England in regards to their approach once the service is fully operational.
The primary aim of the team is to promote and deliver immunisations to increase vaccine uptake through various health promotion activities and planned sessions within schools and community clinics.
The main vaccines delivered are:
The HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination course: two vaccinations - each given 6 months apart - is offered to all girls in the current academic Year 8. As of September 2019 the team will be offering the HPV vaccination to boys and girls in the current year 8. You can find more information about the HPV vaccination on the GOV.UK website.
The School Leaving boosters (compromising of Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio and Meningitis ACWY) are offered to all children in the current academic Year 9.
We also take the opportunity to check that Year 9 children are up to date with their MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccinations and will offer this vaccine if they are not already up to date.
The vaccinations we offer are part of a school-based vaccination programme and we go to all high schools in Leeds to offer vaccinations on site. Home educated children, are invited to have their vaccinations at a community clinic held in Woodhouse Health Centre.
You can find more information about immunisations on the NHS website.
Children in Year 8 and Year 9 will be contacted via school.
If a parent of a child in these year groups feel that their child has been missed, they can contact the School Immunisation Team on 0113 8433101 to discuss.
Parents of children in older year groups (Year 10 and above) can contact their GP practice to arrange vaccinations if they feel they are not up to date with the immunisation schedule.
