Important notice from NWHU

Is your child protected?

Ontario’s Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) requires that parents of children attending primary or secondary school provide their local health unit with proof of their child’s immunization record against designated diseases. As of July 1, 2014 Meningitis (Meningococcal), Whooping Cough (Pertussis), and Chicken Pox (Varicella) have been added to the list of designated diseases and are now required immunizations for school attendance.

Children and adolescents who have received all recommended vaccines as per the Ontario schedule will not require any further immunizations. Changes were made to improve the health and safety of school children as these diseases can easily spread in schools. For more information phone your local Northwestern Health Unit office.

If you have any questions about this message, or the immunization changes in general, please contact:
