The School Aged Immunisation Service will monitor your child's immunisation status throughout their school life and will be able to give advice and support on immunisations.
School nurse teams work closely with the School Age Immunisation Service. This is a separately commissioned service and is commissioned through Public Health England.
The School Aged Immunisation Team provide vaccinations for children of school age (Reception - Year 11) across Derbyshire and now including Derby City. The team go into school to immunise the children against different illnesses, including Flu, Meningitis ACWY, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio, and HPV. Consent forms will be sent out via school and the team will collect them once returned to school ready for the vaccinations. If your child does not attend school, or is home educated, please contact the team and they will arrange a clinic appointment for you. For more information, visit each immunisation page. The dates for immunisation sessions in school can also be found here.
The team is split into two groups who cover the North and South of Derbyshire (and Derby City), based in Clay Cross (Chesterfield) and Repton. The team consists of ten immunisation nurses, five immunisation assistants and four immunisation administrators.
