Coronavirus (COVID-19)

School-based Immunisation Programme

All immunisations which are part of the School based programme eg Year 8 (HPV) and Year 9 (HPV, Td/IPV, Men ACWY and MMR if required) that were postponed due to Covid will resume delivery in schools between 4th September and 9th October.

All scheduled vaccinations should go ahead as normal including a new programme for Year 7, unless a child has Covid symptoms or is self-isolating because of someone in the household displaying symptoms.

Any child who misses their session in school, will have a second opportunity to receive their vaccinations when the immunisation team return to school later in the academic year.

If you wish to speak to someone regarding your child’s immunisations please call 07920254400 or email the immunisation team administrator at

School nurses: We are qualified nurses who work in state schools across Oxfordshire. We have nurses based in all secondary schools and further education colleges, and a team who look after children in primary schools.

We provide advice on health choices such as healthy eating, sexual health and substance misuse. We offer health reviews, deliver childhood immunisations, support for teenage parents and families with complex needs, and much more. Safeguarding children and young people is at the heart of what we do, and we work with parents/carers as well as with partner agencies such as social health care services.

College nurses: We work with commissioners and further education colleges in Abingdon, Witney, Oxford City, Banbury and Henley to develop and deliver a high quality service for young adults.
