School immunisation clinics
Queensland’s School Immunisation Program (SIP) provides free vaccines to Year 7 students in all Queensland state and non-state secondary schools.
The Queensland Government offers free meningococcal ACWY vaccination to all Year 10 students through the School Immunisation Program in 2017. The Meningococcal ACWY Program will commence in some schools in school term 2, 2017 and will progressively be rolled out throughout the school year.
Hosting a school immunisation clinic
All secondary schools in Queensland receive the Information for Schools booklet (PDF, 393kB) that outlines how schools can facilitate a successful immunisation clinic, with tips on what needs to be done before, during and after the clinics.
Sample letters to parents/legal guardians and a school newsletter article are included to help keep your school community up-to-date.
Parent information and consent cards
Parents will be sent detailed information and asked for their consent prior to any school immunisation clinics.
