VACCINATION - CONSENT FORM
FULL NAME: . . .MEDICARE/DVA NUMBER : ………………. ……….
FACILITY: ……………………………………………………………………………. D.O.B: . . . . . . General Information :
The flu is caused by a number of strains of the Influenza virus that are easily spread by infected droplets in the air
through close personal contact, coughing and sneezing. The annual influenza vaccination is designed to provide
protection against several severe strains of the virus that the World Health Organisation has identified to be prevalent
for that year. It provides protection in up to 90% of people for approximately 9 months. There is a new vaccination
brought out each year in about March or April. Residents of institutions are immunized for their own sake but also to
protect other residents who may be more vulnerable to the consequences of infection.
Pneumococcal vaccine is given to protect against pneumonia from the 23 most prevalent or invasive
pneumococcal types of Streptococcus pneumoniae,
including the six serotypes that most frequently cause
invasive drug resistant infections. The first injection is given from age 65 by the community GP. It was
followed by a booster 5 years later. Recent recommendations are that the booster not be done.
ADT Booster stimulates the immune system to form antibodies that protect against diphtheria and tetanus.
Protection can be expected to last for up to ten years. Even small injuries can result in exposure to tetanus. BEFORE CONSENTING TO RECEIVING VACCINATION, PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS. THE
