Catch-Up Immunization Clinics for Grade 7/8 Students
Every year, Ottawa Public Health provides the opportunity for grade 7/8 students to receive their immunizations for Hepatitis B, Meningococcal C and HPV. This year, OPH was not able to come to the school to do the vaccinations. They are running several catch-up clinics for families to be able to attend, including one at St. Patrick's. These are by appointment early. Call in advance to get the time/date that you prefer. Please see the following information sheets for further explanation:
