From this year all boys and girls in Year 8 are able to have the HPV vaccine at school to protect them against future infection from nine types of HPV. HPV is the final immunisation given as part of New Zealand’s free childhood immunisation programme.

All year 8 students will be given a consent form which includes detailed information about the immunisation. Please complete the consent form, either consenting or declining to the school based programme, and return the form to school before Friday February 17th

For more information contact the HPV Immunisation Team at WellSouth  (03)214 6436 or  0800 800 249 or go to www.health.govt.nz/hpv
