Availability of male and female nurses

Where possible, we have tried to provide both a female and male nurse to supervise the vaccination clinics on all clinic days. Due to logistical reasons, this has not been possible for every clinic day and location.

Please see this list and schedule with the available of genders for the nurses.

Keeping our community safe, well and supported

The flu vaccination programme is an important part of the School’s return to campus plans to support our students and staff by working together to keep our community safe.

All students are encouraged to get a flu vaccination irrespective of whether or not they have had a COVID-19 test.
