The Windsor Essex County Health Unit has suspended 1,519 local students due to incomplete immunization records.

“The Immunization of School Pupils Act (1990), Section 11, Subsections (1) and (2) require public health units to maintain and review vaccine records for every student attending school and to enforce a school suspension for incomplete immunization information,” the Health Unit said in a statement. “Due to out of date immunization records, 1,519 secondary school students have been suspended today.”

The Health Unit says the following steps will occur once a student/parent/guardian provides the Health Unit with an updated immunization record:

  • The record will be updated,
  • The student/parent/guardian and the school principal will be informed,
  • The suspension will be lifted, and
  • The student can return to school.

They say immunization clinics are available at the Health Unit today and throughout the week. While appointments are not required, they say you can visit wechu.org/getimmunized for more information on clinic times and to book an appointment. They say immunization records are accepted in person between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday, at their  Windsor and Leamington offices. The student’s primary health care provider can also fax updated immunization records to the Health Unit at 519-258-7288.
