Grade 7 Immunizations

What Immunizations Are Given In School?

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit provides immunizations in local schools for Grade 7 students.

Grade 7 students have the opportunity to receive up to three vaccines at school at no cost:

  • Hepatitis B
  • Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) (Gardasil 9)
  • Meningococcal ACYW-135 (Menactra)

Hepatitis B and HPV are voluntary vaccines. Meningococcal vaccine is mandatory and required for students to attend school in Ontario.

How Does the Program Work?

The program works by:

  • Students bring home the Vaccine Consent and Information Form.
  • Parents review and sign the consent form for each vaccine they want their child to receive.
  • Students return the consent form to their school.
  • The Vaccine Preventable Disease (VPD) team picks up the consents and reviews them before the school clinic.
  • The Vaccine Preventable Disease (VPD) team holds clinics at your child’s school two times a year (Fall and Spring):
  • If your child is absent during one of our school clinics, they will be caught up during their Grade 8 year.
