The health and safety of families and staff is our top priority. Several measures are in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at immunization clinics. These measures include:
Screening: Everyone is screened for COVID-19. Anyone who has signs or symptoms of COVID-19 is not permitted to enter the clinic. If you feel unwell or have been in close contact with some who has tested positive for COVID-19, please cancel your appointment. Do not come to the clinic.
Physical Distancing: Physical distancing will be maintained where possible. This includes in waiting areas and clinic rooms. Please follow directions from staff to help support physical distancing during your visit.
Please note: Only one adult (parent/guardian) may accompany the student to the clinic. All other family members are encouraged to stay home.
Masks and Face Coverings: Everyone needs to wear a mask or face covering while in the clinic, unless exempt. If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one upon arrival.
Handwashing: Everyone must clean their hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer when entering the clinic. Staff perform hand hygiene throughout their shift. This includes before and after providing immunizations.
Cleaning and Disinfecting: Enhanced cleaning measures are in place. This includes disinfecting any surfaces or objects that are touched, in-between clients. Fewer appointments are available to allow for proper cleaning and disinfecting between appointments.
