Important updates: School-based Immunization Program
Regular school-based immunization clinics are starting again in April 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.
Information and consent packages will be sent home with students. Note: These clinics will not be offering COVID-19 vaccines.
Planning is also currently underway for community-based clinics to be held in the summer of 2022. Vaccine appointments will be available for all eligible students who have missed school-based immunizations. Please check back regularly for updates.
Additional immunization and enforcement activities (Immunization of School Pupils Act, vaccine education sessions) are currently on hold.
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.
