Grade 7 Immunization Clinic (October 15-17)

posted Oct 7, 2019, 11:46 AM by Holy Trinity Catholic High School

What?  Ottawa Public Health Grade 7 Immunization Clinics At Holy Trinity


When? Once in the Fall (October 15-17) and once in the Spring (April 20-22).

 

How does my child get the vaccine?

All students in grade 7, (students born in 2007), will receive a package at school with consent forms for hepatitis B, human papillomavirus (HPV) and meningococcal disease vaccines one (1) to two (2) weeks before the clinic date.  If you don’t see a package speak with your child. These vaccines are publicly-funded, so no payment is needed.

 

What do I do with the package?

Both you and your child should:

1)      Read the vaccine fact sheets 2) Sign the consent form for EACH vaccine you want your child to get.

 On the day of the school clinic, your child should:

 ·         Eat a good breakfast.

·         Bring an extra juice or snack to school.

·         Wear short sleeves or a loose shirt so that the upper arm can be exposed easily, without undressing.

·         Bring the consent form to school.

 

Please note for safety, confidentiality and efficiency, we are not able to accommodate parents who wish to remain with their child during immunization in our school clinics. To discuss alternatives such as our daily Constellation clinic and evening catch-up clinics please call  613-580-6744.

 

Grade 7’s who miss the Fall clinic will be able to receive their vaccines at the Spring clinic. If your grade 8 child missed a vaccine in grade 7, or if you have questions about the grade 7 vaccines please call Ottawa Public Health (OPHIC) at 613-580-6744 and ask to speak to a nurse.

Dear Parents or Guardians,


We have a number of students or siblings of students at Holy Trinity who are going through cancer treatment.  As their immune systems are severely compromised, we are asking your co-operation to let us know immediately if your son or daughter contracts or comes into contact with communicable diseases such as mumps or chickenpox.  These diseases could prove to be fatal if passed on to these students.


Thank you very much for your diligence and support.


Sincerely,


Bob Garnett,

Acting Principal
