A Message from our School Nurse

 

Communicable Disease and Immunisations

 

We have been notified of current cases of chicken pox in WA Primary Schools. This is a timely reminder to ensure your child’s immunisations are up to date.

 

Maintaining a high level of immunisation within our community is very important to control the spread of communicable diseases and to keep everyone well, especially those who are most at risk such as babies, pregnant mothers, the elderly and those who are unwell or immunocompromised.

 

Your child can have their 4 year old / Kindy age immunisations from 3 ½ years of age. 

 

If your child has missed out on vaccinations, or is old enough to receive their next booster vaccines, please visit your doctor or immunisation clinic to enhance their protection from communicable diseases such as chicken pox.

 

If your child becomes unwell, please visit your Doctor.

 

Regards,

School Nurse
