Important information about school-aged vaccinations
A number of free immunisations available on the NHS are provided in schools rather than through GP practices. These help protect against serious diseases including cancer and meningitis. Parents of home educated children can also access these important immunisations for their children.
Please view the link below to the school vaccination letter for more information.
