Information about the 2018 year 7 vaccine program for secondary schools

Students in Year 7 are offered the following vaccines in 2018:

  • Diphtheria, tetanus & pertussis (whooping cough) combined vaccine – one dose
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine – two doses

The varicella catch-up vaccine program in secondary schools has now been completed.

We are in the midst of updating this page with the 2018 school vaccination programs. Some of the information on this page still pertains to the 2017 school vaccination programs.

The following information and resources have been sent to Principals of all Victorian secondary schools in Jan-Feb 2017. The resources have been developed to assist schools in the delivery of the Secondary School Vaccine Program, and to communicate important information to the school and parent community.
