Tetanus, Diphtheria & Polio combined – given to boys and girls aged 14-15 years  •Meningitis ACWY vaccination, also given to boys and girls aged 14-15 years and those aged 15-16 years that missed the vaccination last year

These vaccinations are routinely offered as part of the national Childhood Immunisation Programme in secondary school. If your child does not attend a secondary school these vaccinations are still available and can be obtained by booking an appointment at one of the community clinics located in Exeter, Newton Abbot, Tavistock and Barnstaple. 

If you would like to book an appointment or require any further information please contact a member of the Immunisation team.  Alternatively, your GP practice will also be able to advise you.

Please also refer to the School Nursing update below for services that are available to children and young people that are home educated as well as those attending school.
