Message from The local Immunisation Team – added on 4 October 2021

Dear Parents and Carers of children aged 12-15.

The local Immunisation Team, responsible for administering your child’s COVID-19 vaccination, has asked that we share the following communication with yourselves. Please note, Harton Academy is merely a venue for the COVID vaccine, and we are not in the position to respond to any queries you may have regarding the vaccinations. Please could you contact the Team on their number, below, instead? 

Many thanks and best wishes.

Mr Amos.
Acting Head Teacher

We would greatly appreciate if, at any opportunity, you could communicate the following to parents: 

We aren’t aware of any further opportunities at present for children aged 12-15 year olds to receive the Covid vaccination, the best advice we can give to parents is to await possible announcements from the government.

Due to the amount of preparation and tight timescales we’ve been set, we are unable to process any additional Covid consent forms in time for the school’s session. 

Unfortunately, some immunisation sessions aren’t being complete due to time constraints.  

We are doing our utmost to achieve the deadlines we’ve been set by the government and can’t express enough how grateful we are for your support and assistance in the preparation and running of the sessions and for all of your patience.

Many thanks,
The School Based Immunisation Team
