School-based vaccination catch-up clinics

Our immunisation team is offering ‘catch-up’ clinics for children who have missed their school-based vaccinations.

If your child has just finished  Year 8 or 9 they will have been routinely offered their Human Papilloma (HPV), MenACWY (meningococcal) and DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and polio) at school during the 2022/23 academic year.

For those who missed their vaccinations due to being absent from school at the time, who are home schooled or not in education, our team are running clinics at community venues across Gloucestershire offering HPV, MenACWY and DTP to Year 8 and 9 pupils.

Parents and guardians who are unsure whether their children are up to date with their HPV, DTP and MenACWY vaccinations, including those in Year 10 and Year 11, are encouraged to get in touch with our immunisation team by calling 0300 421 8140. They will check your child’s record and offer them catch-up vaccinations if needed

Catch-up clinics are happening at the following locations on these days:

  • Wednesday 23 August
    Stroud Community Clinic, Stroud Maternity Hospital GL5 2JB
    North Cotswolds Hospital, Moreton-in-Marsh GL56 0DS
