School Immunization Schedule
Each year, Alberta Health Services, Public Health reviews immunization records for students in grades 1 through 9 to see which immunizations students need. A consent form is then sent home with an information sheet for each vaccine recommended for each student. No immunizations will be given in school without consent from a parent or legal guardian. Immunizations in this program include:
Any routine childhood or school vaccines that may have been missed according to a review of the students immunization record on file.
- Hepatitis B (HBV) vaccine for students who have not already completed a hepatitis B immunization series
- Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine
- Tetanus, acellular pertussis (dTap)
- Meningococcal (Groups A, C, Y, W-135) conjugate vaccine
