Reminder - Required Vaccines to Attend School
The Peterborough County-City Health Unit is reminding parents that beginning this September children will need to have proof of immunization against three more diseases before they can attend school.
The diseases are meningococcal disease, whooping cough and chickenpox.
In most cases, children will have already been vaccinated against these three diseases as they are currently included in the publicly funded immunization schedule for Ontario. As of July 1, the law was changed to require these vaccines to attend school.
To check if your child has up-to-date vaccinations, or to report the dates that your child received vaccinations, call the Peterborough County-City Health Unit at 705-743-1000.
