Flinders Council administers the free School Based Immunisation Program (SBIP), offering vaccination for age groups specified in the National Immunisation Program. The 2016 School Program will provide the following:
- Grade 7: HPV vaccine
- Grade 7: Diphtheria, Tetanus & Pertusis (DTPa)
- Grade 7: Varicella (Chicken Pox)
Children in these grades will be given a consent form at school, which a parent or guardian must complete, sign and return to the school for their child to be vaccinated. Council is unable to vaccinate your child without this completed and signed form.
If you have any questions, please contact the Flinders Council’s Environmental Health Officer.
