Announcing the commencement of the Schools Programme, Dr Stephanie O’Keefe, HSE National Director, Health and Wellbeing, confirmed that over 40,000 information packs will be delivered across the country this week in advance of the HSE Vaccination Teams starting their scheduled post primary school visits in September where first year girls will get the first of two doses of the vaccine.
