If your child has an existing medical condition and you have already completed medical forms for him/her at St. Michael's, you are only required to complete the GF035 form. This form does NOT require a physician's signature if there are no changes to your child's condition/medication.
Students or parents and legal guardians can check if their child has already received their routine school immunizations through the Immunize Connect Ontario (ICON) website or by asking their primary care provider. Meningococcal vaccine is a single dose. HPV and Hep B are a two- or three-dose vaccine series, depending on age at time of vaccination.
By getting these vaccines, students will be protected against serious diseases, including preventing cancer later in life.
To find out more about the routine school immunizations or to get information on other select clinic locations, check the Peel Region website.
