Huron Perth Public Health will be at DCVI on Feb. 11 and Feb 27th to offer an Immunization Clinic.
If it has been 10 years since a student's last needle agains tetanus-diptheria-pertussis, or they missed pertussis in their tetanus-diptheria booster, they will be offered an Adacel or Boostrix vaccination.
This vaccine is required for school attendance. Students who do not have this immunization, or a valid exemption on file, will be suspended from school on May 26, 2020.
If this applies to a student in your home, an information package will be provided to them through their period 5 homeroom.
While high school students are able to consent to immunizations themselves, we ask that you discuss this immunization with your child and encourage them to take advantage of the opportunity to get their vaccination at the school clinic.
