Getting your child vaccinated is an important decision. When you choose to vaccinate your child, you are protecting them from many vaccine preventable diseases (Maladies pouvant être prévenues par la vaccination) that can cause serious illness and even death.

School based vaccination programs and vaccine requirements

School clinics are held every year by the Health Unit. Grade 7 boys and girls are eligible for vaccines against Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and Meningitis. Annual high school vaccination clinics take place for those students who require their 10 year tetanus booster as well as any additional vaccines that were missed throughout their childhood.

Elementary school clinics - grade 7 students

High school clinics

School suspension

Students who are not up-to-date with their vaccinations may be affected by our suspension process and will be required to receive the mandatory vaccines, or provide the appropriate documentation. 

Vaccinations have the following health benefits:

  • Prevent illness and death
  • Prevent disease outbreaks
  • Guards against missed work or travel
  • Protects people and communities
  • Improves quality of life
  • Reduces health care costs

Vaccinations are a safe way to keep your child healthy and free from diseases. Vaccination information for parents is available to help you make the most important decision in your child's health. The Publicly Funded Immunization Schedule gives you information on what your child needs and when they need it.

If you plan to bring a child other than your own to receive their vaccines at the Health Unit, proof of legal guardianship/permission will be requested by the immunizing public health nurse. Please remember to bring this documentation with you to every appointment.
