School Immunization Clinics

York Region provides school-based clinics for all Grade 7 students offering hepatitis B, meningococcal disease and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.

If students miss one of the school immunization clinics they can book an appointment to attend one of our Immunization Clinics.

Parents need to consent to have their children immunized. The School Immunization Consent Form can be returned by:

Immunizations

All Grade 7 students can be immunized against hepatitis B, HPV and meningococcal disease type A, C, Y, W-135. Although vaccinations against Hepatitis B and HPV diseases are voluntary, students are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated. Meningococcal vaccination is required for students to attend school, unless a valid exemption is on file.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. There is no cure for hepatitis B but most people will recover from it. About 10 per cent of those infected with the virus will carry it for life and can spread the virus to others. Hepatitis B can cause permanent liver damage or even death. It is the biggest cause of liver cancer.

Eligibility to receive Hepatitis B vaccine for free continues until the end of grade 8.

Meningococcal Disease

Meningococcal disease is an illness that can cause meningitis (inflammation of the tissue around the brain and spinal cord) or meningococcemia (infection of the blood). This disease can cause severe long-term health complications or death. All children attending school are legally required under the Immunization School Pupils Act to be immunized against meningococcal disease, unless a valid exemption due to medical, conscience or religious reasons is provided.

Eligibility to receive Meningococcal ACYW 135 vaccine for free continues until the end of high school.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

HPV is a very common virus that has many strains. The HPV vaccine can prevent infections from the HPV strains that cause of the majority of cervical cancer and genital warts.

The vaccine is available to all grade 7 students. Eligibility to receive HPV vaccine for free continues until the end of grade 12 for all females and males born on January 1, 2004 or after only.

Suspensions

Has your child been suspended? Here’s what you need to know.

All public health units in Ontario are required by law to collect and update immunization records for children registered in schools and licensed childcare centres.

If an immunization record is incomplete, York Region Public Health will ask the student or parent/guardian for the information.  Doctors do not report this information to York Region Public Health.
