Important information regarding Halton Public Health school programs
- Until further notice, Halton Region Public Health has temporarily suspended all school health programs. This includes:
- cancellation of suspensions and enforcement related to the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) for children born in 2010-2012;
- vaccine education sessions for parents and guardians;
- immunization and oral health clinics; and
- school health promotion activities performed by public health nurses.
- Please check back regularly for updates.
In Ontario, routine immunizations are mainly given in family doctor’s offices. However, Halton Region also offers Community Immunization Clinics for school-based immunizations.
Community Immunization Clinics are available for school-age children who have missed an immunization clinic at school, including:
- Hepatitis B
- Meningococcal ACYW
There is no cost for this service.
