Parents of Toronto school-aged children must provide their child’s vaccination information to Toronto Public Health.
Ontario’s Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) requires parents of children attending elementary and secondary school provide their local health unit with proof of their child’s immunization against the following designate diseases:
All the vaccines needed for school are free. Make an appointment with your healthcare provider if your child needs any of the above vaccines.
Note: It is the parent’s responsibility to update their child’s immunization record or provide a valid exemption form to Toronto Public Health.
For parents who choose not to have their child vaccinated for medical, religious or philosophical reasons, please call us.
Students without the required vaccines will receive two notices asking for updated immunization information. To avoid school suspension, please report your child’s immunization, every time they receive a vaccine or booster.
Due to the current COVID-19 response, Toronto Public Health has decided not to implement elementary school suspension for students who are not up-to-date with their immunization. All immunization information sessions have been cancelled until further notice.
