We are required by the Immunization of School Pupil’s Act RR. O 1990 Reg. 645 to ensure children attending school in Chatham-Kent are immunized.

To do this, we:

  • Keep immunization records on every student attending school
  • Review student records annually to ensure that each student’s vaccinations are up-to-date
  • Make phone calls and send out letters requesting missing information or reminding parents to update required immunizations
  • Issue school suspension notices until the required immunization information is received


Immunization is required in Ontario. However, some children may be exempt for the following:

If you wish to have your child exempted, you must submit a completed Medical Exemption Form or Statement of Conscience or Religious Belief Affidavit to us. Medical exemptions must be authorized by a physician.

For more information, please call us at 519.355.1071 ext. 5900.
