The best time to be vaccinated against HPV is in your early teens. That’s why students are usually vaccinated in year 7 at school. Remote learning in Victoria during parts of 2020 means that some children may have missed out.
Not sure if your child was vaccinated? Now is the time to check with your local council immunisation service or your GP.

Stay Covid Safe

We touch many common surfaces & objects every day, often without noticing. This increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, germs & other bacteria.
If someone has COVID-19 and droplets from their cough or sneeze land on a surface, other people can become infected if they touch this and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth.
That’s why it is so important when you’re out and about to:
• wipe down and disinfect surfaces before and after use, if possible
• avoid touching your face
• wash or sanitise your hands often, including before eating,
• wash or sanitise your hands again when you get home.
Look out for: money, countertops, door handles, elevator buttons, hand rails, keyboards, petrol pumps and shopping trolleys.
