Students in years 7, 8 and 10 can receive free vaccinations at school through the National Immunisation Program.

These free vaccinations include:

Trained and qualified vaccination teams visit schools to deliver the vaccines throughout the year.   

To make sure your child is vaccinated

The school will provide a vaccination consent form.

The child’s parent or guardian must sign the form and return it to the school before the child can be vaccinated.

As a parent or carer, it’s important to talk to your child about the importance of immunisation. If you need help to start the conversation and get them prepared, watch our vaccination videos for high school students.

If your child misses a vaccination at school, see your GP or other immunisation provider to catch-up on the vaccination they missed.
