Can parents/carers of pupils that bring home immunisation forms please ensure prompt return of completed forms as pupils without forms on immunisation days will not be immunised.  We are unable to take consent over the telephone as the Assembly Hall has no telephone or mobile signal.  S2 girls and above who have previously had one HPV immunisation will be called automatically for the second immunisation as they require 2 to be fully covered.  Thank you in advance from the Immunisation Team.
