Important updates: School-based Immunization Program

School-based immunization clinics are resuming in October 2022. Public Health Nurses will be visiting Halton schools to offer Hepatitis B (HB), Human Papillomavirus (HPV) 9-valent and Meningococcal Conjugate-ACYW-135 (Men-C-ACYW) vaccines to students in grades 7 and 8. Visit Halton’s School-Based Immunization webpage for more information.

Additional immunization and enforcement activities (Immunization of School Pupils Act, vaccine education sessions) are currently on hold.

Planning is currently underway for community-based clinics. Appointments will be available for all eligible students who may have missed receiving school-based vaccines due to COVID-19. Please check back regularly for updates.

 

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.
