Grade 7/8 Immunizations at Sacred Heart

posted Oct 19, 2018, 11:13 AM by Kelly Nixon

Ottawa Public Health will be holding an Immunization Clinic at Sacred Heart on Monday, October 22 through Wednesday, October 24, 2018.  These vaccines are publicly-funded, and available at no cost to you.

Earlier this week, your child will have received the vaccine consent form(s) from Ottawa Public Health (extra forms are in the main office, if needed).  Your child needs to return the signed consent form(s) to the school immunization clinic in order to receive the vaccines. 

All students in grade 7 will receive consent forms for the following:

  1. Hepatitis B

  2. Meningococcal Disease Vaccines (Menactra)

  3. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine

Students need a signed consent to get this vaccine. You are encouraged to talk with your child about the vaccines; and ideally both you and your child should sign the consent form.

On the day of the school clinic, remind your child to:

  • Eat a good breakfast.

  • Bring an extra juice or a snack to school.

  • Wear short sleeves or a loose shirt so that his or her upper arm is exposed easily, without undressing.

  • Bring the signed consent forms with them to the school clinic

Students who miss a clinic will be able to receive the vaccine at the next school clinic.

If you have any questions, please call the Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 and ask to speak to a public health nurse.
