Meningococcal B Vaccine Herd Immunity Study (Issue 8 2017)
Written on the 8 June 2017
The first round of the vaccinations under the Meningococcal B Vaccine Herd Immunity Study was successfully administered on Wednesday 10 May to all students who had registered for the study. In order to accommodate the large number of students taking part in the study, the vaccines will be administered in year level groups over a number of days throughout the year, which started with Year 11 students. Please see below for the dates when the vaccines will be administered:
Round 1 Vaccinations
Round 2 Vaccinations
Year 12: Tuesday 22 August 2017 (Week 5, Term 3)
Year 10: Wednesday 23 August 2017 (Week 5, Term 3).
The Meningococcal B Vaccine Herd Immunity Study will only involve those students who have returned a completed and signed consent form.
The dates of the administration of the vaccine have been chosen to minimise disruption to lessons and the learning of students, however the complexity of administering the vaccine to all students throughout the day may result in some lessons being affected.
If you have any urgent enquiries or questions about a late return of a consent form or regarding the content of the study, please contact Popup Medics on 1300 858 047 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
