Public health nurses review all student’s immunization records. If your child is due for an immunization that is required to attend school or if your child is eligible for an optional free vaccine, you will receive:
- a consent form offering a school-based immunization clinic for your child;or
- a notification letter advising you to book an appointment with a health unit office or health care provider.
For more information on Ontario’s immunization schedule visit Ontario.ca/vaccines.
Consider using the free app from immunize.ca as a tool to help you keep track of and share your child’s immunization record.
For more information, or to receive a copy of a consent form contact the Timiskaming Health Unit and ask to speak with a Nurse from the School Team.
If you choose not to immunize your child for medical, religious or philosophical reasons, you must submit either a Statement of Medical Exemption or a Statement of Conscience or Religious Belief. For more information on exemptions and to access the appropriate forms, please click here.
