School Based Immunisation Programme

Message from Waitemata District Health Board

Lockdown restrictions have interrupted this year’s school-based Year 8 Human Papillomavirus (HPV) immunisation programme in the Auckland region.

It is important to keep your children vaccinated so that they are protected against HPV.

Vaccination is free and we encourage you to have your child vaccinated through your GP.  GP practices have COVID-19 infection prevention control measures in place.  Talk to your GP at the time of booking if you have any concerns.

Anyone who has questions, or is having difficulty accessing their GP, can contact a public health nurse (PHN) by phoning (09) 486-8996 ext 2.
