Immunization

Secondary School Immunization

Secondary School Immunization Clinics

We have recently mailed letters home to notify you if your child’s record on file with us is not up to date, and if not, what immunizations are missing. During the pandemic, we know that many secondary school students were unable to receive their routine and required immunizations. To help your child get caught up, we are partnering with local school boards to offer school immunization clinics at secondary schools in Simcoe Muskoka in 2023. 

School immunization nurses will be visiting secondary schools in February - March to offer catch-up clinics to secondary school students who have missed required vaccines (i.e., Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis or Tdap) and those that missed vaccines normally given during grade 7 (i.e., Hepatitis B, Meningococcal ACWY-135, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV)) through the school immunization program.

During theses clinics, students will have the opportunity to attend the clinic running on site at their school during school hours. Students will not be called down individually, but instead alphabetically by first letter of last name. No paper work or ID is required and nurses will be using verbal consent from each student. Records are updated live on our provincial database and each student that is immunized will receive an aftercare form indicating which vaccine was provided and any follow up that might be needed. 

There are three options for students to get caught-up on missed immunizations:

  • School immunization clinics taking place this school year. Check the listing for your child's school below. Schools will be updated as we confirm dates.
  • Through your child's health care provider. Remember to report the immunization to us after.
  • At a public health office by appointment only.

To book an appointment at one of our health unit office clinics, click here, or call Heatlh Connection at 1-877-721-7520 (toll free) or 1-705-721-7520, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Did you know that all students in Simcoe Muskoka must have an up-to-date immunization record with the health unit as per the standards of the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA)? Please note that in Ontario health care providers do not automatically report immunizations to their local public health unit. Reporting and reviewing immunizations is easy and online

Need to review your child's immunizations? Use any of the following ways: 

1. Check their yellow immunization card.

2. Call your doctor or primary care provider. 

3. View their immunization record online
