Immunisation Catch Up Clinics

Jul 8, 2020 | Children and Young People, Immunisations

Our immunisation team is offering ‘catch up’ clinics for children who missed their school-based vaccinations due to lockdown, or were absent from school at the time of their immunisations.

We will be running drive-through appointments at Edward Jenner Court in Brockworth, Gloucester, throughout the summer, as well as clinics at community venues across Gloucestershire, to catch up with as many of the 7,000 vaccinations missed this school year as possible.

The service will focus on providing ‘catch ups’ for Year 9 pupils, as well as vaccinations for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) for Year 8 boys and girls and Year 9 girls only.

Parents and guardians who are unsure as to whether or not their children are up-to-date with their HPV, DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and polio) and MenACWY (Meningococcal) vaccinations are encouraged to get in touch with our immunisation team by calling 0300 421 8140.
