Vaccinations in school


With effect from September 2015, The School Age Immunisation Service for Derbyshire has been responsible for providing all immunisations for children and young people who are of school age.

We currently host the North Derbyshire Immunisation Team twice a year when they provide the following vaccinations to students:

  • Year 9 ACWY and Teenage Booster vaccinations
  • Year 8/9 (female students only) Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations
  • NEW Year 8 (male students) Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations

Please note that, as the NHS have arranged for these vaccinations to be delivered in school, these are no longer offered routinely at the GP surgery.

If you have any queries regarding the vaccination programme, please contact the School Age Immunisation Team direct on 01283 707170 and select option 3.

Vaccinations normally take place during the Spring and Summer term.  Further information on the vaccination programme will be distributed to parents/carers nearer the time.
