Algoma Public Health
Grade 7 Immunization
What is the Grade 7 Immunization Program?
Every year grade 7 students are offered 3 vaccines through the school immunization program. Students are offered Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus, and the Meningococcal vaccine. Meningococcal vaccine is required for attending school while Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus are not required but recommended to protect children from these diseases.
Due to the pandemic disruption, many Algoma youth are due for school-related immunizations. These clinics are for current grade 7 students as well as any students who have missed their grade 7 immunizations from the past 2 years.
We had a public health nurse answer the most common questions students and/or parents have when it comes to grade 7 vaccinations. You can watch the videos below.
