New immunisation programme against meningitis




Consent packs for vaccinations from NHS Lothian are out now for pupils in S3 to S6. 


Every year, pupils in S3 are offered the Teenage booster  to complete their life long protection, through routine immunisations, against tetanus, diphtheria and polio.  



In addition this year all S3 – S6 pupils are recommended a meningitis vaccine (ACWY).  This is to protect against the W strain of meningitis which is on the increase across the UK. 

Please read the letter, discuss the vaccinations and return completed and signed consent forms to school by FRIDAY 11th DECEMBER 2015.
