School-based immunisation programmes play a vital role in delivering vaccines to school-aged children. This document outlines standards and systems for efficient, effective and safe delivery of vaccines in schools.

There are currently two immunisation programmes delivered in schools: the Year 7 tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine and the Year 8 Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine programme for girls (expanding to include boys in 2017).
