Grade 7 Vaccinations

24 Sep

On Wednesday September 26th, York Region Public Health will be here to offer The HPV and Hepatitis B Vaccine to all grade 7 students.  Consent forms were sent from Public Health to home addresses in June and July.  If you do not have a consent form or have misplaced it, please visit and click on School Immunization Clinics.

These vaccinations are given only to students who present their consent forms to the nurses on Wednesday.  If you miss this opportunity, you can make an appointment to visit a public health clinic at a later date.

Wednesday September 26th is Dose 1 and in the Spring of 2019 we will have a clinic to offer Dose 2.
