NHS Highland Vaccine consents

The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is offered to every S1 pupil in Scotland. Evidence shows the HPV vaccine helps protect both boys and girls from HPV-related cancers. NHS Highland provided Information and consent letters in December, to pupils in S1 and some from S2 and S3 that missed out previously. Can you please ensure your consent is returned to the school reception by Tuesday 11 January, so they can progress with the HPV vaccination programme at the end of this month.

Also, S3 and S4 Pupils will receive information and a consent letter at tutor time on Tuesday 11 January, for Diptheria, Tetanus/Polio and Men ACWY Vaccination programme. Can you please discuss this with your child and return your completed consent forms to the school reception by Tuesday 18 January.
