Walk-In Community Immunization Clinics will be offered to students born in 2000-2001 that have received a suspension notice. Students are asked to bring in their notice and any immunization records that they have.

Care for your Child after Vaccinations

Vaccines, like any medicine, can have side effects that are usually mild and brief. Most children are fine after getting a shot. Side effects are usually minimal and last less than 24 hours. In rare cases, a child may have a serious allergic reaction. The risks of a serious reaction happening are lower than the risks of the diseases the shots prevent. After your child receives a vaccination (shot), your child will be asked to wait for 15 minutes to make sure that there are no side effects.

School Immunizations and Suspension

The Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) R.S.O. 1990 is a law in Ontario that helps to protect the health of children and our community, and requires students attending school in Ontario to be immunized against nine diseases or have a valid exemption on file. The ISPA also requires the WECHU (Windsor Essex County Health Unit) to review immunization records of all students attending elementary and high schools to ensure that records are up-to-date.
