I've had several optional ones at that age - Hepatitis A and some other one... the one that makes you immune from getting something when you get poked by an unclean sharp object.

You need to have tetanus every 10 years but apart from that unless you're going abroad you don't need anything in this country. Most schools do BCG when you're in year 8 or 9, so you might need that too if you haven't had it.

You really only have to have them if your going on holiday to a risky country. Otherwise u should have had them in school.
