Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine

2 July 2021 (by Mark Burton (M.Burton))

Dear Parent/Carer

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH

Your Child’s Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine is due.

Due to the success of the HPV vaccination in significantly reducing HPV related cancers and genital warts, the HPV vaccine is now offered to boys as well as girls. The vaccination is offered to children in Year 8 (as of September 2021) and is given as a course of 2 injections over a period of 6 to 24 months. The HPV vaccinations are part of the NHS childhood immunisation programme.

What do you need to do?

Please complete the online consent form by clicking here: https://bit.ly/3cmRlkr

Or access the online consent form, by typing the following address into your internet browser: https://www.leedsimmunisations.co.uk/Forms/HPV_p1

You will need to enter a unique code for your child’s school.

The School code for CARDINAL HEENAN CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL is: EE108095 (Please ensure you enter all letters and numbers.)

Important: If you do not wish your child to receive the vaccination, it is still important to complete the “refusal section” on the form so that we understand your wishes.

Please complete this form as soon as possible. If we do not receive the consent form before the immunisation session, your child will not have another opportunity to receive the full vaccine course in school.

We are coming into CARDINAL HEENAN CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL IN OCTOBER 2021

Further information: Further information about the HPV vaccination is available here or by searching www.nhs.uk
