Immunization in Schools
Avoid school suspension by keeping immunization records up-to-date!
Student’s immunization records must be provided to Public Health in order to attend school. In the next few weeks, Public Health will be sending notices to students with incomplete immunization records. Anyone who gets a notice should contact their family doctor so they can update their vaccines, and then report their new vaccines to Public Health.
Report every vaccine to Public Health using one of the following methods:
- Online: Fill in the form at http://www.immunizewdg.ca or
- Email: Send a photo of the immunization record to [email protected] or
- Call: 1-800-265-7293 ext. 4396.
If a student is not getting vaccinated for medical reasons, reasons of conscience or religious beliefs, an exemption form must be submitted to Public Health. The forms are available at http://www.wdgpublichealth.ca
Public Health is committed to helping students update their vaccination records so they can avoid suspension from school.
