Re: HPV (Human Papillomavirus Vaccination) Programme

Dear Parent/Legal Guardian,

The HPV vaccine protects girls from cervical cancer. Three doses of HPV vaccine are required to give full protection and these are given over a period of 6 to 12 months.

The HSE vaccination programme is continuing in second level schools. All girls who commenced vaccination since September are now due their second dose.

The HSE school vaccination team will visit your daughter’s school on Friday 18th November to give the next dose.

Your daughter should NOT receive another dose of the vaccine if she

  • had a previous severe allergic reaction to Gardasil

  • is pregnant

Please contact us at the number below if you think your daughter should not have the vaccine

On the day of vaccination please make sure your daughter

  • has eaten breakfast

  • wears a loose fitting short sleeved top

  • brings her immunisation record card to school

If you have any questions, the school vaccination team will be happy to help. We can be contacted on 8467097

Any eligible student (1st and 6th year) who did not avail or the first dose in September may do so on the 18th November and can then receive their second dose in March. Third dose for 1st years in September 2012 and a mop-up clinic for 6th years. Information will be given to all students to ensure they receive the three vaccinations for HPV.
