School age vaccinations

All vaccinations given in school to school age pupils are free, even if you've been on the Island less than six months. The age the vaccines are offered are based on evidence that shows this is the most effective time to protect your child.

You'll receive information about these vaccinations and a consent form to complete when vaccinations are due.

They're given in school by experienced school nurses who will make sure nervous pupils are as comfortable as possible.

If your child has recently moved to Jersey and missed any vaccinations, the school nurse team will contact you to arrange for them to be protected.
