Year 9 Booster Vaccine – Friday 22 June 2018

Y9 jab

This is a final reminder that the Year 9 Booster Vaccine is taking place here at Bohunt this Friday 22 June.

This important double vaccine is for tetanus, diphtheria and polio and 4 common strains of meningitis. The nurses will be in from around 8.30am and students will be called down in groups to receive the injection from period 1.

Please be assured the injection is very quick and painless! Common side effects can include some swelling or redness at the injection site; this is nothing to worry about. Students will be provided with water and a quiet place to sit if needs be. Ideally students should eat a good breakfast in the morning to avoid feeling faint.

Whilst the consent forms have now been collected, we can still accept late forms so there is still time if your child hasn’t handed theirs in. There are spare copies in the front office, any queries please contact Ms Stacey in the school office or email
