Region of Waterloo Public Health and Emergency Services is postponing the annual enforcement of the Immunization of School Pupil’s Act (RSO 1990) and its activities for the current school year.
The suspensions for elementary students set to start on March 25, 2020, and on April 29, 2020, for secondary students will not take place.
Public Health will put in place actions over the summer to make sure students, who would have received suspensions, have an opportunity to get their vaccines up-to-date before the start of the new school year. More information about this process will be available before the end of the current school year.
Families can report their child’s immunizations online with Public Health at any time.
