Immunization - School Services

Provides routine immunizations to children in schools in Grades 1-9.

This program provides routine immunizations to children in Grades 1-9 in school. Before immunizations are given, records are reviewed to see what immunizations each child needs. A consent is then sent home. No immunizations will be given without consent from a parent or legal guardian. Immunizations in this program include:

 

  • Grades 1-9: Immunization record review for all students in grades 1-9, and identify and offer immunizations to students who have incomplete immunizations.
  • Grade 6: Offers Hepatitis B, human papilloma virus (HPV) and varicella (chickenpox) immunization to children who aren't immunized or have NOT had Hepatitis B or varicella disease. In August, 2014 HPV vaccine started being offered to grade 5 boys and girls. There is also a catch-up program for the grade 9 boys and girls who did not receive their vaccine in grade 5
  • Grade 9: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and meningococcal vaccine is offered
