School Age Immunisations

The School-Age Immunisation Service offers vaccinations to children (aged 4-16) across all Hampshire schools and children who are electively home educated.
For children attending a special school, we offer vaccinations up to their 25th birthday.

The teams work closely with Teachers, School Nurses and other health professionals to help ensure young people receive their vaccinations when they are due.

Your immunisation nurse

Immunisation nurses work in partnership with children and their families to provide access to the full childhood immunisation programme - a key part of the UK Government's 'Healthy Child Programme'.

All children are routinely offered vaccinations which protect against:

  • tetanus, diphtheria, polio
  • (known as Td/IPV)
  • measles, mumps, rubella (known as MMR)
  • influenza (also known as seasonal flu)
  • hepatitis B
  • rotavirus gastroenteritis
  • human papilloma virus (known as HPV) helps to protect against cancers caused by human papillomavirus
  • meningococcal groups A, C, W, Y and B
  • pertussis (Whooping Cough)
  • haemophilus influenza type B (Hib) pneumococcal disease

The school vaccination calendar

Autumn Term: Seasonal Nasal Flu is offered annually to children aged 4-12 in Year R to Year 7 (in some special schools, it is offered up until 18th years of age).

Spring term: Teenage boosters (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio and MenACWY) offered to all in Year 9 and above.
Summer term : HPV vaccines offered to Year 8 (first dose) and Year 9 (second dose), plus any catch-ups of teenage boosters.

There are several community clinics run throughout the year for various immunisations offered to those that are electively home educated. Immunisation records are regularly reviewed and if you are missing any of the vaccinations you will be directed to your GP or offered an appointment with the immunisation service.
