Dear Parents/Guardians

Immunisation program for Year 7 and Year 10 students

St Rita’s College is a vaccination venue for the Queensland Health
School Immunisation Program, a program of Queensland Health. Under
recent amendments to the Public Health Act 2005, Principals are
required to disclose student and parent information for all Year 7 and
Year 10 students to approved school health providers, unless the
Principal, at their discretion, deems disclosure is not in the best
interest of the student. Examples of reason for non-disclosure include
custody, child protection and police considerations.

Consent forms will be sent home with Years 7 and 10 students this
Wednesday, 23 January. Please ensure you ask your daughter/s for these
forms. Return of the forms is required by Monday 29 January – a very
short turnaround.

_Only students with a completed and signed consent form will be
vaccinated. If you would like your child to be vaccinated, please fill
in the consent form and return it to the Student Services by Monday 29
January. _If you do not wish your child to be vaccinated or your child
has already been vaccinated, please note this on the form and return
it to College by Monday 29 January.

Students will be offered free Human Papilloma Virus (HPV),
Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis (Whooping Cough) and Meningococcal ACWY
vaccinations.
