School Immunization

Routine School Vaccine

If your child is in grades 7 to 12 this school year, they are eligible to receive their routine school vaccines or complete the vaccine series if they have already started them. These vaccines include Hepatitis B, Meningococcal ACYW-135, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

Due to COVID-19, eligibility for these vaccines has been extended:

  • Students in grades 7 to 12 are eligible for Hepatitis B vaccine
  • Girls born in 2002 and 2003 remain eligible for the HPV vaccine until August 31, 2022
  • Students in Grade 7 or later remain eligible until Meningococcal ACYW-135 vaccine is received

Please note: Hepatitis B and HPV vaccines require two doses (minimum six months apart) to fully protect against the disease. Meningococcal ACYW-135 is provided as a one-time dose. 

As a result of school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, the vaccines were not offered at school. If you wish to have the vaccines administered at your family doctor’s office, the vaccines are available for your doctor to order from Public Health.
