With the flu season well and truly upon us, we have an onsite vaccinator available alongside our school nurse Kate, to immunise and give students the best defense against influenza. More information is available here.
Although there is no prevention for COVID 19 and adolescents are considered low risk in contracting COVID, specialists are concerned if there is a co-infection with another respiratory virus, this may increase the risk and severity of COVID 19. Therefore it is our recommendation that all our students flu vaccinated.
More information will be emailed to all parents regarding the flu vaccine including a consent form to sign before being able to administer the vaccine.
Dates are yet to be confirmed but is likely to be a day next week. There is a cost of $30 per student however, if your child meets the eligibility criteria, then the vaccine is administered at no charge.
