School Vaccine Program Update – Letter from Public Health

December 7, 2021


Dear Parent/Legal Guardian

RE:  School Vaccine Program Update

Since restarting the school vaccination program on November 1, 2021, Public Health has provided over 3200 vaccinations to over 1280 students.  These vaccines are normally provided in each school but, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, are now being offered at Public Health offices in Waterloo and Cambridge.

If your child is in Grade 7, 8 or 9 during the 2021/2022 school year, they are eligible to receive their school program vaccines or complete the series if they have already started them.  Appointments are now available at 99 Regina Street South, Waterloo and 99 Beechwood Road, Cambridge.

If you have previously declined these immunizations or have a legal exemption on file at Public Health, please disregard this letter.

Typically, each school year, Grade 7 students have an opportunity to receive the following three vaccines in school-based clinics.  Please note that meningococcal ACYW-135 vaccine is required for school attendance under the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA).  Although the Immunization of School Pupils Act has not been enforced during the COVID-19 pandemic, students’ immunization records will be reviewed in the future for vaccines required by the Act.

  • Hepatitis B (2 dose series)
  • Meningococcal ACYW-135 (Menactra®) (1 dose)_
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) (Gardasil®-9) (2 dose series)

Please note that Hepatitis B and HPV vaccines require 2 doses to fully protect against these diseases.  Menactra® is provided as a one-time dose and a second dose is not required to complete vaccination.  Some children may have already received a meningococcal vaccine prior to age 12 (usually at 1 year of age).  The grade 7 immunization with Menactra® is still recommended to provide protection against strains not included in the earlier vaccine.

Next Steps:

If you wish to have your student complete these vaccinations, please do the following:

  1. Ensure your students’ vaccination records are up to date:
  • Before booking an appointment, ensure that all vaccinations received from your health care provider or other vaccination clinics have been reported to Public Health
  • Parents/students can access immunization records and submit immunization information via ICON ( or by calling 519-575-4400 5001 (Monday to Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm)
  • Your student’s Health Card Number is needed to view their immunization record
  1. Book your students’ vaccination appointment:

Vaccine Exemptions (For Meningococcal Vaccine Only):

  • You may decide for medical, religious or philosophical reasons not to immunize your child. In this case your will need to provide a written vaccine exemption for Meningococcal vaccine, one of the vaccines required for attendance at school
  • For medical exemptions, a legal Statement of Medical Exemption must be forwarded to Public Health. Please call 519-575-4400  5001 if you wish to submit a Statement of Medical Exemption
  • Public Health is not currently processing non-medical vaccine exemptions (statements of conscience). Additional information will be communicated to parents once the non-medical exemption process has been restarted

**Note:  Public Health does not issue COVID-19 vaccine exemptions.  Please contact your family physician, pharmacist, allergist or nurse practitioner if you require written documentation.

If you have questions about the School Vaccine Program catch-up process, please call 519-575-4400 ext. 5001.

Book Fair 2021

Book Fair 2021 

Monday, December 6th Preview Day! 

Tuesday-Friday Purchasing! 


That time of year has come again, BOOK FAIR!!!! This year the Book fair will be in person again, unfortunately we are still not able to have the parents shopping evening like we have had in previous years. 

Each class will get a chance to visit the library for their preview, they will write out their wish list and bring it home. There will be a scheduled time for your child’s class to return to the library to purchase their items.  

This year again there will be a wish list for your child’s classroom put together by their teacher to help build their classroom library.  

I will be taking email orders if you would like to purchase some Christmas gifts for your child but don’t want them to know. You can just email me the order and I will fill it and then contact you when it is done, and we can arrange a time for pick up. Also, if you would like to purchase a book from your child’s teachers list, please email me so that we don’t get duplicates.  

All proceeds from book purchases will go directly back into your child’s school library.  

Did you know, 94% of children agree that their favourite books are the ones they picked out themselves! 

Thanks, and happy shopping!!

Vaccines are an important tool to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and allow families to safely resume normal activities.

Although children and youth are less likely to get very sick from COVID-19 they can still:

  • Get sick from COVID-19
  • Be infected and not have any symptoms
  • Spread COVID-19 to others
  • Experience longer-term effects if they do get infected

COVID-19 vaccines authorized by Health Canada are safe, reliable, and can help protect you, your family, and our community from COVID-19. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines.

This webpage will be updated when additional information about COVID-19 vaccines for children becomes available.

Can my child get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Children born in 2016 or earlier are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Find information about how to get a vaccine.
