Parents or guardians may choose to exempt their children from vaccines for personal or medical reasons. Getting an exemption form is the legal process to exempt your child from getting vaccines.
Halton Region Public Health is continuing to work with the Ministry of Health on the enforcement of mandatory vaccines under the Immunization of Students and Pupils Act (ISPA). However, due to the unforeseen circumstances brought on by COVID-19, school suspensions under ISPA will not be enforced during the 2021/2022 school year. Vaccine education sessions are not available at this time, and therefore Halton Region Public Health is not currently accepting submissions for non-medical exemptions. Please check regularly for updates.
