Dear Parent/Carer

The Immunisation Team routinely provides the recommended protection to year 9 pupils against:

  • Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (DTP)
  • Meningitis ACWY
  • Also known as school leaver boosters

Pupils in Durham, Darlington and Teesside secondary schools will be offered these immunisations during the spring term 2019.

If you wish for your child to have these vaccines please complete an electronic consent form by using the following link (if you have already consented it does not need to be done again):

www.hdft.nhs.uk/electronic-consent

(Please note that this can be completed on smart phones and tablets)

If you would like further information regarding these immunisations, please see the following link:

If you have any questions regarding this or do not have internet access or difficulty completing the form please contact the Childhood Immunisation Team for Durham, Darlington and Teesside on telephone number 0300 003 0013.
