We are currently running drive through clinics to ensure this years' cohort do not miss out on their HPV vaccination that they would usually receive in school. Below are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding the drive through clinics. If these don't answer your question, please call us using the information on the Contact Us page.
To book an appointment on our online system, please click here.
1. I don't have access to the internet or can't access the system, how do I book an appointment?
If you do not have internet access, or are struggling to make an appointment using the online booking system, please call us and we can do this over the phone. The phones are very busy at this time, so please leave us a message and we will return your call as soon as we can.
2. I can't drive/don't have access to a vehicle, what is being put in place for this?
We can support walk in appointments at these clinics. Please book an appointment using the information that school have sent or by clicking the link above. If you are still unsure of anything, please call us.
3. My child is in Year 10/11, do they need to attend the clinic?
If your child is in Year 10/11 but they have already received both doses of the HPV vaccination, they do not need to attend the clinic. If they are still outstanding a dose of the vaccination, please make an appointment for them using the information sent to you via school. If you are unsure if they have received both doses, please call us and we can check for you. The first dose should be given in Year 8 and the second dose in Year 9.
4. I'm unavailable on the dates in my area, what can I do?
You can attend any clinic that you wish to, not just the ones that are in the closest area to your child's school. For example, for the Chesterfield area we are holding a few different venues. We are limited to the venues that can support these clinics, so please know we are trying our best to offer as many venues and as possible. If you still cannot make any of the clinics, it is not detrimental to your child to receive the first dose of their vaccine in Y9 in school.
5. I can't see any appointments for the original dates that my school sent me. Why are there only later dates available?
Our appointments are being offered to schools across the whole of Derbyshire. There are tens of thousands of children that are eligible for the HPV that we are offering appointments to. The clinics are booking up quickly, so if you cannot see the original date that you were offered, this means all the slots have been booked. We are offering around 200 appointments per clinic day, so there are plenty for everyone. Appointments may become available if they are cancelled by patients so please keep checking in case a slot becomes available.
