Important Immunization Message from Peel Public Health
In Ontario all students are now required to be immunized against meningococcal disease. Students 12 years of age and older must have the meningococcal ACYW-135 vaccine or valid exemption.
Most students would have had the vaccine in grade 7/8. Students who have not had the vaccine receive a notice in the mail from Peel Public Health.
Registered Nurses from Peel Public Health will be coming to our school in the spring to offer the meningococcal vaccine to students who require it. Students 14 years and older can sign their own consent form.
The date of the clinic will be announced as soon as it becomes available.
More information about meningococcal disease, the vaccine and clinics is available at immunizepeel.ca; and by calling Peel Public Health at 905-799-7700.
IMPORTANT....After school literacy classes begin February 10th, 2015.
