Grade 7 School Immunization Program
Toronto Public Health visits approximately 423 schools every year to offer free vaccination to Grade 7 students. The three vaccines are:
The consent package is sent home with the students in early September. The package includes:
- Letter of instructions for parents
- Information about the vaccines
- Vaccine information pamphlet
- Consent form / formulaire de consentement
School vaccination clinic dates are now available. (If your child misses the school clinic, we will be back again in the spring.)
Parents should return the signed consent form, even if you choose not to have your child vaccinated. This will avoid repeated forms being sent to your home.
Note: The vaccines are not free at the doctor’s, unless by special order from Toronto Public Health.
High school students who missed the meningococcal and hepatitis B vaccines are still eligible for the free vaccines through our community clinics. High school female students are also eligible for the HPV vaccine series. Make an appointment online.
Choose one of the following options:
- Report online (Also allows you to see your child’s immunization records online.)
- Call us at 416-392-1250
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.
