HKPR District Health Unit will send students a notice for one of the following reasons:
We have not received a child's immunization record. Families’ health care provider's office do not automatically report vaccines to the Health Unit, that they have given to students.
We have not received a student’s legal immunization exemption.
A student has not received one or more of the following vaccines:
- Meningococcal disease
- Pertussis (whooping cough)
- Varicella (chickenpox) for children born after 2009
If there is an outbreak, students who are not protected against the infection will have to stay home from school until the outbreak is over or until they are immunized.
