BDCFT Immunisation Team

Bradford School Immunisation Team

The primary aim of the team is to promote and deliver immunisations to increase vaccine uptake through various health promotion activities and planned sessions within schools and community-based clinics. Home visits also carried out for children who may have additional needs or requirements and need to be in the familiar surroundings, some of these children may also be very anxious.

The Main Vaccines delivered are:

  • The HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination course: two vaccinations - each given 6 months apart - is offered to all girls in the current academic Year 8. As of September 2019, the team will be offering the HPV vaccination to boys and girls in the current year 8. You can find more information about the HPV vaccination on the GOV.UK website.
  • The School Leaver boosters (compromising of Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio and Meningitis ACWY) are offered to all children in the current academic Year 9.
  • We also take the opportunity to check that Year 9 children are up to date with their MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccinations and will offer this vaccine if there are any missing doses.
  • The Nasal Flu spray, as of September 2021 all school children in reception to year 11 will be offered the flu vaccine (Awaiting Flu letter 2021 for confirmation).  The inactivated Flu injection (Non-Porcine) may be available later in the year, and parents will be contacted to offer.
