Hepatitis B Clinics

To prevent the spread of Hepatitis B, the Ontario Ministry of Health provides free Hepatitis B vaccine to students in Grade 7 so they can develop immunity before they become sexually active. The vaccine is given in two doses and provides lifelong immunity.

Taking the vaccine is voluntary, but it is recommended. Consent forms are sent home from school each fall, and students receive the injections that fall and the following spring.
