School Immunisation Program

Queensland’s School Immunisation Program (SIP) provides parents with the opportunity to have their Year 7 and Year 10 children vaccinated for free through all Queensland state and non-state secondary schools.

SIP schedule

Vaccines recommended by the National Immunisation Program Schedule are available free of charge to registered vaccine service providers implementing school immunisation clinics.

The vaccines offered for all Year 7 students are:

Year 7 students who miss any doses of vaccine at school are eligible to receive their missing doses up to the end of the following year. Vaccinations not completed in this time frame will need to be purchased with a private prescription.

Adolescents not attending school who would normally be in Year 7 are eligible for these vaccinations.

There is currently a time limited program offering meningococcal ACWY vaccine to Year 10 students during 2018.

SIP resource kit

It is recommended that each vaccine service provider develops their own policy and procedures for conducting a SIP ensuring compliance with current legislation, professional standards and codes of practice.

The 2018 Resource kit for vaccine service providers (PDF 2727 kB) provides detailed information on each of the steps to implement a school immunisation clinic.
