    Hello…I was under the impression that they had to have these immunizations. Is this true?

    • Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit on

      Thanks for your question Tanya.
      The meningitis (MenC-ACYW135 Menactra) vaccination is required for all students according to the Ontario Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA).
      The hepatitis B and HPV vaccines are highly recommended, but not mandatory.
      If you would like more information or have further questions please give us a call 519-355-1071 ext. 5900

  2. Exemptions are available for the meningitis vaccination. Why don’t you mention this? The meningitis vaccine is not “mandatory”. You can get an exemption.

    • Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit on

      The immunization of children against vaccine preventable diseases is one of the most important ways to promote their health and a cornerstone of Public Health practice. Meningococcal disease is easily spread and 10% of those who develop Meningitis will die. Exemptions for medical, philosophical or religious reasons are available for those who choose not to immunize their children.

  3. According to the immunization of school pupils act (ISPA) you can easily get an exemption if you do not want to get a vaccine. According to health Canada vaccines cannot be made mandatory in Canada. According to the Ontario healthcare consent act, consent must be informed and given voluntarily and not obtained through misrepresentation or fraud. It is legally required to inform parents that exemptions are available and vaccines are not mandatory.

  4. Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit on

    Exemptions are available and as of September 1, 2017 a booked appointment and an education session at Chatham-Kent Public Health WISH Clinic Services is required. A certificate will be issued to the parent upon completion. A signed and notarized affidavit for every student must also be completed and returned to Public Health to avoid school suspension.
    Parental consent is obtained after the review of provided immunization fact sheets and by written signature before any shot is provided by our staff at school. Those with additional questions or concerns are asked to contact us at 519-355-1071 ext. 5900.
