Grade 7 clinic vaccines and schedule

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

Visit affected services and facilities for current information about school-based and community immunization catch up clinics.

Access the following fact sheets about each disease and the vaccine:

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 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 in the fall, and 1 in the spring.

Consent form

A parent or guardian’s permission is required for all students under 14 years of age. A consent form must be completed for students to receive the vaccines in school.

  1. Use your computer. The form may not open on mobile devices (iPads, tablets, cell phones).

Additional resources

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.

Catch–up clinics

Catch-up immunization clinics are held on a regular basis for eligible students who missed their Meningococcal, Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines in Grade 7.

These services are cancelled until further notice.

Call 905-799-7700 to book your appointment once clinics resume. Caledon residents 905-584-2216.

Clinic location:
7120 Hurontario St. Mississauga,

Free parking is available. The clinic is in the cafeteria on the main floor. If someone is coming with your child, limit attendance to 1 visitor per child being immunized.

Children who miss the vaccines at school-based or catch-up clinics can get them through their family doctor or walk-in clinic for a fee.
