Reminder: Year 10 Immunisations Friday 22 March

First Visit Reminder

First Visit Reminder for Parents of Year 10 Students

Immunisation information for parents/legal guardians of Year 10 students

All Year 10 students will be offered:

  • two doses of the meningococcal B vaccine, Bexsero® at two separate visits (two months apart).
  • one dose of the meningococcal ACWY vaccine, Nimenrix®

The Eastern Health Authority (EHA) will be visiting Concordia College on Friday 22 March to complete the meningococcal B (first dose) and ACWY vaccine, Bexsero® and Nimenrix® immunisations for Year 10 students where consent has been provided.

Further information and videos for high school students are available online.

Immunisation consent packs were given out at the beginning of the school year with information about the vaccines on offer. It is important that you have read the information supplied in the packs before you give consent for your child to be vaccinated at school. If you did not receive an Immunisation Consent pack from your child, please ask at the school office.

If any information you gave on the original consent form has changed, please inform the Authority’s immunisation staff before the date of vaccination on 8132 3600.

Please notify us if:

  • Your child has already started the above program with another provider
  • You wish to withdraw your consent
  • Your child’s medical condition has changed.

Tips for the day of immunisation:

  • Encourage your child to have a good breakfast and recess on the morning of immunisations
  • Wear sports uniforms to aid easy access to the upper arm and avoid unnecessarily exposing yourself if clothing needs to be removed/undone
  • Encourage your child to keep their arms moving and drink plenty of water throughout the day.

If you have any further questions about the program, please directly contact Eastern Health Authority on 8132 3600 or via email at

Remember: It is your responsibility to notify EHA of any changes or information, particularly in relation to your child’s medical condition. A signed and dated note in your child’s diary from a parent or guardian presented on the day is acceptable.

School Immunisation Program records will be available on MyGov within 24 hours of the school visit.
