Immunization Notices Sent
The Renfrew County and District Health Unit has sent out an immunization warning to students.
The health unit is taking stops like this to make sure students are not suspended from school for immunizations not being up to date.
The Immunization of School Pupils Act puts the onus on health units to maintain all immunization records for students to avoid serious disease spreading.
With this in mind, the health unit has sent out reminder notices to families of students that are not up to date on their immunizations.
If the records are not brought up to date by the deadline, suspension orders will be issued by the Acting Medical Officer of Health.
