SCHOOL IMMUNISATION PROGRAMME
We are the Immunisation Team for all Lancashire High Schools.
The Immunisation Team are based at Penwortham St Mary’s Health Centre, Cop Lane,
Penwortham, Preston, Lancashire, PR1 0SR.
We administer the HPV vaccine to Year 8 and Year 9 girls, to protect against cervical cancer.
We also administer the Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio vaccine, and the Meningitis ACWY vaccine to Year 10 students.
When it is time for your child to have these vaccines we will send a consent form and some information home with your child and this must be returned to school as soon as possible.
If you have any queries or concerns about the vaccine schedule or any of the vaccines that we administer in school you may contact us on Tel: 01772 644499
