The Windsor Essex County Health Unit will now be providing 3 vaccinations to Grade 7 students in your child’s school.
The vaccinations will protect your child against Hepatitis B infections, Meningococcal disease and HPV. The meningitis vaccine is a required vaccination according to the Immunization of School’s Pupil’s Act. The Hepatitis B and HPV vaccines are highly recommended. These vaccines are available free of charge from the public health unit.
We will be offering these vaccines through the school based clinics in the fall, during the months of October/November/December and in the spring in April/May/June.
Your child will receive 2 shots in Oct/Nov (Hep B #1 and HPV #1) and 3 shots in the spring (Hep B #2, HPV #2 and Meningitis).
Please take the time to review the Fact Sheets sent home from school and listed below.
The Hepatitis B, Meningitis and HPV Consent is given to your child in September at school.
