Grade 7 clinic vaccines and schedule

Our nurses give free vaccines at school for all students in Grade 7.

Free vaccines include:

Immunization clinics are held 2 or 3 times during the school year, depending on the size of the school.

These free vaccines protect against very serious diseases. Our nurses will record the immunizations given in school–based clinics in Grade 7.

Parents do not need to report the following immunizations.

Meningococcal

1 dose of the Meningococcal-C-ACYW-135 vaccine protects against 4 types of the most common types of meningococcal disease.

This is a serious illness that can cause an infection of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) or an infection of the blood (meningococcemia).

This vaccine is given in the fall or winter.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B vaccine protects against a disease that affects the liver and can cause permanent damage. Your child will receive 2 doses: 1 needle in the fall, and 1 in the spring.

HPV

HPV vaccine protects against genital warts and various cancers including cervical cancer. Your child will receive 2 doses: 1 needle in the fall, and 1 in the spring.

A parent or guardian's permission is required for all students under 14 years of age. Consent forms are sent home with students for parents to sign.

Students who miss their opportunity to get the vaccine in Grade 7 will be offered the vaccine in school again in Grade 8.

If your child is a student who requires medical supervision during immunization or has special needs (for example, a non–verbal student), contact us at 905–799–7700.

If your child attends a non–traditional school setting (for example, vocation or home school), call us to discuss other immunization options.
