A Roman Catholic school has banned pupils from receiving the new cervical cancer vaccine on its premises.
Governors at St Monica's High School in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, believe the school is "not the right place" to administer the injections.
The vaccinations give immunity to key strains of the sexually-transmitted Human Papilloma Virus, responsible for 70% of cervical cancers.
The school's head teacher said he could not comment on the governors' decision.
______________________________________Well to be honest - I agree with this. I don't believe school is the place to be administering health treatments. We have doctors surgeries and hospitals - not to mention other clinics etc for this purpose.
What do others think ?
May God's Blessing be with you all today.
