How children who don’t go to school can get their jabs

One of the difficulties of home-schooling your child, is that you will have to monitor how and when your child is due their vaccinations. These jabs are easy to organise in school because every child normally has them, and the school organises them for you. However, it’s simple for you to organise your child’s vaccinations yourself.
One of the vaccinations that is offered to children is the HPV vaccine, which stands for the Human Papilloma Virus. It’s the name of a group of viruses, which have various degrees of risk. This vaccination protects children against cervical cancer, genital warts, STI, skin warts or verrucas, vaginal or vulval cancer, anal cancer, cancer of the penis, cancers of the head and neck, and laryngeal papillomas, which are warts on the voice box or vocal cords. It’s offered to all girls aged 12-13, who will need two doses, but if they’re older they’ll need three rounds of the jab in order for it to be effective. Boys can also get it too in order to protect themselves from certain types of HPV. If a child who is home-schooled would like to get the jab, there are four ways to get it done. Firstly, if the child is aged under 18, they can get it done on the NHS for free. You can also speak to their GP or nurse, and see what the clinic can provide you with, or you can get it done at a private clinic, like Fleet Street Clinic. Finally, you can buy it from an online pharmacy, like Superdrug online doctor, where the cost depends on the amounts of doses you want or full round ranges. One dose is around £150-£200, while full round ranges from £300-£450.
Another compulsory vaccination is the 3-in-1 teenage booster, which should be given to all boys and girls aged 14. The 3-in-1 teenage booster contains a low dose of purified diphtheria toxoid, purified tetanus toxoid, and three types of inactivated (killed) polio virus. Therefore, it’s protection from diphtheria, tetanus and polio. Diphtheria is a serious bacterial disease that starts off with a sore throat, and can escalate to damaging the heart and nervous system. Tetanus affects the muscles, can cause serious breathing difficulties, and the bacteria that causes this, which is the tetanus toxin, comes from soil and manure, and enters the body through cuts and burns. Polio is a virus that attacks the nervous system, and can permanently paralyse arm, leg and chest muscles. All three of these diseases can kill, which is why it’s important that children should have this vaccination. You can get this vaccination through the NHS, so you should speak to your local doctor or nurse, and see how you can get your child vaccinated against these three, deadly diseases.
Finally, Boys and girls should have a Men ACWY vaccine when they’re 14, and often they have it with the 3-in-1 teenage booster. This vaccination protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia, which are meningocal A, C, W and Y diseases. This vaccination can also be done for free through the NHS.
