Sorell Council provides a school-based immunisation program.
The school immunisation program provides Year 7 Sorell High School Students with two free vaccines. The first vaccine is a booster dose called Boostrix. This vaccine covers diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough).
The second vaccine is Gardasil which protects children from the Human papillomavirus (HPV).
Your year 7 child will be given a consent form at the start of the year that must be signed and returned to the school, even if your child is not being vaccinated.
Department of Health-operated revaccination clinics. Bookings are required. Please visit the Department of Health website to find out more and book an appointment. Or, phone the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 and press option 3.
For all other childhood immunisations, Sorell is fortunate to have two medical practices providing bulk-billed childhood immunisations.
