Regular school-based immunization clinics are now underway. Public Health Nurses are 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.
Students learning virtually, as well as eligible students in grades 9-12 who are missing doses of school-based vaccines can also request these three vaccines from their primary care provider. Remember to report all vaccinations done with your primary care provider to Halton Region Public Health using the online immunization reporting system (external link). You do not need to report vaccines administered by Halton Region Public Health at a school or community clinic. If your child does not have a primary health care provider, visit the Halton Physicians Accepting New Patients webpage.
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.
