DOZENS of students have been struck down ill after a suspected bad batch of vaccinations administered the day before NAPLAN tests.
Students at Marymount College at Burleigh Heads were given vaccinations of tetanus and rubella on Monday with dozens suffering allergic reactions requiring medical attention.
Many went home sick and some had still not recovered by this morning – the day of critical NAPLAN tests.
Parents have told The Courier-Mail that the school’s sick bay facilities were overwhelmed and some kids were left waiting in hallways while others called their parents to take them to medical centres.
Comment was being sought from Marymount College and Gold Coast Health, reports Courier Mail.
