Back to School: Do you have a child in Grade 7?

If so, you should receive immunization consents from the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit the first week of school. This school year we will be providing Hepatitis BMeningococcal and HPV immunizations to all Grade 7 students (boys and girls), as well as catching up any Grade 8 students who may have missed out.

The process is simple – just sign the consent form and send back to school with your child – we will provide the shots during school hours. Our team of nurses plan to visit each elementary school, twice in the fall of 2017 and once in the spring of 2018.

Remember Parents: Meningococcal protection is mandatory for all students who go to school in Ontario!

By following Ontario’s Immunization Schedule, we can keep our children healthy and our schools disease-free.

For further information, please contact the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit at 519-355-1071 ext 5900.
