Why get vaccinated?
We’ve talked a lot about vaccinations in our bulletins lately, but we’re aware that in many school communities there continues to be anxiety about vaccinations – and some may even wonder why vaccines are being emphasised so strongly.As noted, the Ministry of Health have set up a dedicated email you can use for queries about vaccinations and access to vaccination.
