Our School-Aged vaccination team is holding a catch-up clinic in Bristol on 27 July.
The team will be offering the HPV vaccine, Meningococcal ACWY, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccines.
The HPV vaccine is currently given in two doses in year 8 and year 9 and offers protection against the human papilloma virus (HPV) which can cause cancers.
The Meningococcal ACWY vaccine protects against four strains of meningococcal bacteria A, C, W and Y, which cause meningitis and blood poisoning. This vaccine is given in year 9 and at the same time as the three-in-one booster for diphtheria, tetanus and polio immunisations.
You can also catch up on the MMR vaccine if you have missed out. There is no need to book for the vaccinations, just pop in to St Paul’s Learning Centre, in Grosvenor Road, on 27 July from 10am-4pm.
