Teenage Booster and Meningitis ACWY Vaccinations



Consent packs for vaccinations from NHS Lothian are out now for pupils in S3 (and in S4 – S6 who have not yet received their vaccinations). 

Every year, pupils in S3 are offered the Teenage booster  to complete their life long protection, through routine immunisations, against tetanus, diphtheria and polio.   Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

In addition to the Teenage Booster vaccination, all S3 pupils are recommended to have a meningitis vaccine (ACWY).  This protects against several strains of meningitis.   Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

Please ensure that consent forms are returned by 10thDecember at the latest.
