Learn more about COVID-19 and immunizations

Ottawa Public Health has school clinics twice a year, in the fall and in the spring, for grade 7 students. A signed consent form or verbal consent is needed for students to receive the vaccines at school.

School Public Health Nurses can also support principals in the immunization record verification process as needed.

For more information, contact your School’s Public Health Nurse.
