Grade 7 & 8 Immunization Clinic- October 3/14

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Each year, Toronto Public Health offers hepatitis B and meningococcal vaccines to all grade 7 students and the Human Papiliomavirus (HPV) vaccine to all grade 8 female students. These vaccines help protect students and our community from infections which can cause serious disease.

As of July 2014, the Ontario Immunization School Pupils Act requires all students in grade 7 or above to receive the meningococcal C-ACYW-135 vaccine (Menactra) to attend school, unless an exemption is sent by the student's parent or health care provider to TPH.  If your child has already received Menactra vaccine as an infant or toddler, another free dose of Menactra in Grade 7 is recommended for full protection.

Look for your child's vaccination consent package.  Please read, sign and return the consent forms to the school by Monday, September 22, 2014.  

The immunization clinic will take place at Fern on Friday, October 3rd in the morning.

If you did not receive your child's vaccination consent package, please visit Toronto Public Health website at www.toronto.ca/health or call the Immunization Information Line at 416-392-1250.

Thank you,
Vera Ciric
