March Break – a Great Time to Vaccinate!

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) has issued suspension notices to local students with incomplete immunization records
Vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles, mumps and whooping cough, are still a threat. They continue to infect children, resulting in hospitalizations every year.

1,400 suspension notices were issued last week to students with incomplete immunization records. This is the second and final notice to go out to students.

Students must provide updated immunization records, conscientious objections, or medical exemptions to Public Health prior to Friday April 21st to avoid suspension.

For the convenience of students and parents, additional vaccination clinics are being offered by Public Health during March Break as outlined below.
