OPH Vaccination Clinics for Grades 7 & 8 on November 28 & 29

Ottawa Public Health will be on site Monday, November 28 , and Tuesday, November 29, to provide vaccinations for our Grade 7 & 8 students.

All students in Grade 7 (students born in 2010), have received a package from their homeroom teacher with the consent form for the hepatitis B, human papillomavirus (HPV) and meningococcal disease vaccines.

For students in Grade 8, if you and your child signed the consent form last school year, the consent is STILL VALID (consent is valid for 24 months following the date it was given). If consent is on file and your child is due for a vaccine mentioned above, nurses from Ottawa Public Health will, with child consent, proceed with the vaccination. If you are unsure if consent is on file, call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744.

Key Information

These vaccines are publicly funded, so no payment is needed. Please speak with your child about the vaccines. You and your child need to sign the consent form for each vaccine you want your child to get.

Even if you do not want your child vaccinated, fill out the consent form indicating “No” forall vaccines you do not wish your child to receive.


On vaccination day, please 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 a mask to wear in the clinic, and bring the consent form to school.
