MOD STUDENTS HELP INDIGENOUS MUMS WITH BABY IMMUNISATION PACKS
As part of Reconciliation Week, some Perth Modern School students volunteered to help make gift packs for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander mums and carers at King Edward Hospital. These packs promote on-time immunisation and provide resources to improve access to immunisation services.
Representatives from the Metropolitan Communicable Disease Control will be distributing the packs to King Edward Memorial Hospital. Lucy Gunzburg, Mod’s Aboriginal Histories and Cultures Coordinator, arranged for the representatives to visit the school for the vaccination pack making session.
An information card and fridge magnet are included which feature culturally safe information on vaccination, and QR codes identifying suitable clinic sites. The aim of this work is to help these children be vaccinated fully and on time, and to help protect indigenous children from serious infectious diseases.
