Important information regarding Halton Public Health school programs
- Halton Region Public Health has temporarily suspended some school health programs until further notice, including:
- vaccine education sessions for parents and guardians; and
- Grade 7 immunizations at individual school locations.
- School-based immunization clinics for Hepatitis B, HPV and Meningococcal ACYW-135 are now available in the community by appointment. Eligible students include those who are in Grade 7 (born 2009), Grade 8 (born 2008), and Grade 9 (born 2007) who have not yet received vaccines typically offered at school in grade 7. Additionally, appointments are available for eligible students born in 2002 to 2006 to catch-up on vaccines they have missed. Visit our Grade 7 School-based Immunization webpage to learn more or book an appointment now.
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
