Immunization - School Age Children
Student immunization programs have been going on for many years in Ontario, safely protecting our children in schools and in the community. Vaccination provides children with the protection they need against viruses and diseases that can spread at school.
Keep your kids healthy with routine health care and vaccination
Make sure your child's immunizations are up-to-date according to the Child and Early Years Act, 2014 (for children under the age of 4 years old in licensed child care centres) and the Immunization of School Pupil's Act (for students 4-17 in elementary and secondary schools). The Middlesex-London Health Unit reviews the records of children attending school to ensure they are complete. Clinics are also offered in grade 7 for three types of vaccines students are eligible for.
Immunization Record Review
Did you receive a letter from the Middlesex-London Health Unit? Every year, the Middlesex-London Health Unit reviews records of students that attend elementary and secondary school to ensure their immunizations are updated according to the legislation.
Certain vaccine doses are due at specific ages to provide optimum protection against diseases. Letters are sent to families to let them know which vaccine records are missing. If the information is not sent to the Health Unit by the date required, suspension from school may occur. Learn more →
