If you didn’t already think the government had taken your rights as an individual, how about taking your rights as a parent.
Read this very carefully.
Dear parents/guardians and carers
As part of the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out, from Monday, 13 September, all Australians aged 12
and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Victorian Government’s aim is to provide an opportunity for all children aged 12 years and older to receive at least one vaccine dose by the end of the school year.
We have written to your child to provide them with information about their eligibility for getting a vaccination. Students will be supported in every way possible to be vaccinated before the end of the school year.
Students aged 12 to 15 can book their own appointment and may be able to consent to vaccination themselves if the health professional assesses them to be a mature minor. This means that the health professional assesses that they understand the information relevant to this decision to be vaccinated and the effect of that decision.
Where a student is not considered to be a mature minor by the health professional, the health professional will seek consent from the student’s parent/carer.
Parents/carers can attend with their child to provide consent in person or can complete a consent form for COVID-19 vaccination for their child to bring to their appointment.
If you have any health concerns regarding COVID-19 vaccines, please speak to your GP.
You can also refer to the Department of Health website for information on vaccine safety and possible side effects.
How to book an appointment

Vaccination is not mandatory, but it is highly encouraged. Getting vaccinated is the best way you can protect your child, your family and our school community from further outbreaks and the spread of COVID-19. Please make an appointment to be vaccinated yourselves if you have not done so already.
