Our 0-19 team runs the National Immunisation Programme for secondary schools. This includes:
- The HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccine for 12-13 year old girls, Year 8
- The DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and polio) vaccine for 14-15 year old girls and boys in Year 9
- Meningitis (Men ACWY) vaccine for 14-15 year old girls and boys in Year 9.
Most girls who have the vaccination will reduce their risk of getting cervical cancer by 70%.
Cervical cancer develops in the cervix (the entrance to the womb). It is caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus or HPV.
Cervical cancer can be very serious. After breast cancer, it is the most common women's cancer in the world. In the UK, around 3000 cases of it are diagnosed every year and about 1000 women die from it. View the form here to view the form.

2017 - 2018 vaccination dates for schools in the south west, north west and north east Surrey area (see team details below for the areas this covers).
Meningococcal ACWY, diphtheria, tetanus and polio vaccines
When you are having your Td/IPV boosters and Men ACWY vaccine, it's a good idea to check with the nurse or doctor that all your other immunisations are up to date (for example, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), and, for some people, hepatitis B).
It's particularly important to check that your MMR immunisation is up to date because some teenagers have not had two doses of MMR.
Consent forms and information leaflets are sent out via your child's school at the appropriate time. Young people in secondary school who are assessed as competent by nurses can legally self-consent for any immunisation.
The nurse will check the consent form and ensure your child is well and able to have their immunisations that day. If your child is unwell or absent, a letter will be sent home regarding a new appointment.
