Grade 7 Immunization Program

Disruption of the 2019-2020 school year related to COVID-19, halted the delivery of our grade 7 school immunization clinics.  We are working closely with the Ministry of Health to ensure the immunizations your child missed will be caught up.  Once a plan is in place we will inform parents and the school board.

Each school year, our nurses visit each elementary school in Simcoe Muskoka.  School clinics are set up during these visits and three vaccines are offered to each grade 7 student.  The first visit occurs in the fall and the second visit happens in the spring.

Hepatitis B (Hep B) and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine are offered at school clinics in the fall (dose 1) and in the spring (dose 2). Both vaccines require two doses for the best protection. These vaccines are voluntary and not required under the law for school attendance.  Please be sure to let us know if your child has received Hep B as an infant or child through your health care provider (including Twinrix), as this will impact how many (if any) doses of Hep B your child requires for complete protection.

Meningococcal Conjugate C-ACYW (Men-C-ACYW) vaccine is offered at school clinics during the fall.  One dose of Men-C- ACYW vaccine is required for full protection.  This vaccine is mandatory for children in Ontario to attend school.
