Immunization is mandatory when in school!
Immunizing children is one of the most important ways to promote their health. The Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) is a law ensuring that all school students are immunized for the following diseases: Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella and Meningococcal Disease.
Public Health Nurses review all students’ immunization records to make sure that everyone is up-to-date. Immunizations are provided through school clinics, health unit office appointments and physician offices. For more information contact your local health unit office.
