School Immunization Program- Covid

Dear parents and guardians,

Please find attached some important information regarding the Alberta Health Services School Immunization Program.  Students in Grade 7-12 born in 2009 or earlier are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine which may be offered at the school with parental consent. 

If you would like your child to receive the vaccine at the school, please complete the attached consent form and return it to the school no later than 4:00pm on September 9th, 2021.  Scanned copies of the consent form will not be accepted, so we ask that you return a hard copy of the signed form on or before September 9th.

This program is entirely optional for families, and no child under the age of 18 may be vaccinated in the school without parental consent.  Parents and guardians who need further information are encouraged to get in touch with your local public health office or contact Healthlink at 811.

*Please note that we may not host the vaccination program at our school if we have fewer than 20 participants.  If that is the case, we will inform those families who have returned their consent forms that they will need to make other arrangements.
