In Ontario, the Immunization of School Pupils Act requires that all students attending school be fully immunized or have a valid exemption on file. Public Health mailed notices to elementary students with incomplete records at the end of November. If you received a notice that your child’s record is incomplete, the deadline to update your child’s record with Public Health is January 26th at 4PM in order to avoid suspension on January 31st.
