Immunisations for teens

Vaccination form

Click on the child vaccination form button to consent or decline the vaccination for your teen. You only need a few details to complete the form, either your teen's NHS number, or if you don’t have that to hand, their name, date of birth and school name.

If parents do not complete the form, our team will contact you via telephone to ask if you do wish for your child to have the vaccine.

Vaccinations for your teen

Your teen will be offered a range of vaccinations to protect them against serious diseases including:

What to expect on the day

Privacy in schools is often limited so young people should wear a vest or t-shirt under their school shirt so they can take off their school shirt, or a short sleeve shirt so they can expose their arm for the injection. They should have breakfast and a drink before their vaccination.

If your child has missed any vaccinations

Your child will be offered a range of vaccinations throughout their lives. Visit for a checklist of the vaccines and the ages at which they should be given.

You can ring your GP if you are unsure if your child has missed any vaccinations.

You can book an appointment at one of our community immunisation clinics if your child has missed any of the immunisations listed above.

Families who might need further support

We understand children with special educational needs, a disability or those who have a needle phobia may find vaccination sessions stressful. We offer all children the opportunity to receive their vaccinations in an appropriate and comfortable environment.

  • We can go to your child’s school and vaccinate – you may wish to be with them, but this is not a requirement.
  • We have regular community clinics across Kent and Medway that vary from children’s centres to hospitals. You can book at a location and time of your choice and come along with your child.
  • In exceptional circumstances, we may offer home visits.
