Home / Special Announcements / School Vaccination Program


The first round of school vaccinations is being conducted at the Felltimber campus on Monday 13th February 2023.

The following vaccines will be offered on this day:

Year 7 Male & Female students GARDASIL®9 (HPV) DOSE 1 OF 2
Year 7 Male & Female students BOOSTRIX (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough) 1 DOSE ONLY

These vaccinations are funded on the National Immunisation Schedule. Should your child miss out on starting their vaccination course this year they may not be eligible to receive them for free in subsequent years.

Parent information packs were sent home recently.

ALL relevant sections of the consent card must be completed, signed and returned to the school even if your child is NOT being vaccinated.

To consent to your child being vaccinated with one or more vaccines, please tick and sign the relevant YES sections of the consent card in blue or black pen. If you DO NOT wish to have your child vaccinated with one or more vaccines or if your child has already been vaccinated, please tick the relevant NO section on the consent card and return them to the school by Thursday 9th February 2023. Please return the card to the school even if your child is not being vaccinated.

Please note that, to improve vaccination completion, students will be opportunistically offered any missed doses during Year 7 or 8 (for HPV and dTpa vaccination) and during Year 10 or 11 (for Meningococcal ACWY vaccination) if a consent card was signed and returned in 2022.

Parents/guardians who wish to withdraw their consent for any reason may do so by emailing your withdrawal of consent to Council’s Immunisation Team on immunise@wodonga.vic.gov.au before the vaccination day.

Please ensure that your child is wearing their sports uniform or a short sleeve shirt on the day of vaccinations (without too many layers underneath), this will enable a smooth vaccination process.

If you have any enquiries about the program or your child’s vaccinations, please contact Wodonga Council’s Immunisation Team on 1800 655 360.
