Reminder for Students and Parents
Ottawa Public Health will be holding an Immunization Clinic at Holy Trinity on Monday,
November 16th and Tuesday, 17th, 2015. These vaccines are publicly-funded, and available at no cost to you.
On Thursday, November 5th, your child received the vaccine consent form(s) from Ottawa
Public Health. These consent forms were distributed with your child’s Progress Report. 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, and students born in the year 2003, have received consent forms for hepatitis B and meningococcal disease vaccines.
All female students in Grade 8, and females born in the year 2002, have received a consent form for human papillomavirus (HPV) 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
Bring the signed consent forms with them to the school clinic
