Our Services A-Z

School Immunisation Team

Our School Immunisation team offers immunisations to all pupils who attend educational establishments throughout Leeds according to the national schedule. 

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.

The main vaccines delivered are:

  • Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine for girls in Year Eight 
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (DTP) and Meningitis ACWY for boys and girls in Year Nine
  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella given opportunistically for boys and girls in Year nine

This year (2018-19), the Intra-nasal flu immunisations for primary aged children in Reception to Year 5 will be provided in school by Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust. If you need to contact their flu team for any flu related query, please contact the team on 01423 542360 or email them at leeds.immunisation@hdft.nhs.net.

Tel: 0113 2065530

email:  leedsth-tr.screeningoffice@nhs.net

Children over 12 months and up to 15 years

As yet there is no service provision for the over 12 months. A list of names will be collated by the school imms team and be passed on to the new provider once this has been agreed. 

Please email name, address and NHS number of any child over 12 months along with the name and contact number of the referrer to bcgclinicleeds@nhs.net and they will be added to the list. This will inevitably cause a delay in response to the referral. 

For further information regarding immunisations please visit the NHS Choices website.
