Toronto Public Health’s publicly funded immunization program for students in grades 7 and up, is currently paused to provide COVID-19 vaccine to children 5 to 11 years of age and other priority populations.  Vaccines offered in this program protect students from hepatitis B, human papillomavirus, and meningococcal diseases.

During this time please contact your primary care provider, who may order these vaccines from Toronto Public Health and administer them for free. For more information see Vaccine Fact Sheets:

Keep your child’s routine immunizations up-to-date. Please note, Toronto Public Health’s review of immunization records for all school students remains on hold for the 2021-2022 school year.

The following groups are eligible for free vaccines:

  • All students in grades 7 to 12 are eligible to receive their Meningococcal ACYW-135, Hepatitis B and HPV vaccines.
  • People born in 2002 and 2003 can receive their Meningococcal ACYW-135 and Hepatitis B vaccines.
  • Females born in 2002 or 2003 and males up to the age of 26 who identify as men who have sex with men (MSM) can receive the HPV vaccine.
