Important updates: School-based Immunization Program
As we continue to navigate the impacts of the global pandemic; plans to offer catch up clinics for grade 7 and 8 students have been delayed to support the ongoing efforts of the COVID-19 vaccination program. Planning for addressing the needs of this student population will begin in late spring. Please continue to check for updates.
Parents/guardians of students who are missing the vaccines listed below, which are usually received at school, may also contact their health care provider to receive vaccination:
We encourage parents to continue to report their child’s vaccinations to Halton Region Public Health using the online immunization reporting system.
Please visit our Grade 7 School-based Immunization page for more information.
Additional immunization and enforcement activities (ISPA, vaccine education sessions) are currently on hold. Please check back regularly as planning is currently underway.
The Health Department leads efforts in Halton Region to prevent disease and optimize health for all citizens. Part of our work includes promoting immunization/vaccination, and monitoring compliance with provincial requirements for immunization/vaccination.
