• Have their heard about jabs needed before they can travel to faraway places

Instructions

• Discuss these and compare them to each other as well as linking them into other issues
• Such as poverty and the availability of the immunisations
• Discuss the HPV vaccine – have the girls all gotten it? Why/Why not? It was their parents’ decision – do they feel they should have gotten a say etc
