Catch-up Vaccine Clinics for Students

Page Banner for Grade 7-8 vaccines

Dear Parents/Guardians/Students. We apologize for cancelled clinics. We are working hard to rebook clinics for all grade 7’s and 8’s who have missed their school vaccinations. Continue to check back regularly. Communication for rebooked dates will also come through your school. Clinics will be expected to resume in the first couple weeks of March. Thank you.

Earlier this year, the Provincial government announced the closure of all schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Grade 7 school vaccine clinics scheduled to occur between April and June 2020 were cancelled by Hamilton Public Health Services.

Hamilton Public Health is now providing catch-up vaccine clinics at select HWDSB and HWCDSB high schools as well as some community locations for current Grade 7 and Grade 8 students (born in 2007 and 2008) who missed their Hepatitis B, HPV, and Meningococcal ACYW-135 vaccines in Grade 7 to catch-up on their vaccines.

These catch-up clinics will provide students the opportunity to receive all three missed vaccines at one time bringing their vaccine records up to date.

Parents and caregivers should consult the charts below for the specific date and location for their student to receive their vaccines. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, students can only attend the clinic location associated with their feeder school. You should receive communication from your school about these clinics.

Catch-up Clinic Dates and locations by Feeder School

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, students can only attend the clinic associated with their feeder school as outlined below. If the student cannot attend their scheduled clinic, please call Public Health Services  (905) 546-2424 ext. 7556 for alternative options.

Note: All catch-up clinics will be walk-in during the assigned time for each feeder school with COVID-19 precautions in place.

Consent forms DO NOT need to be completed ahead of time. Consent will be obtained onsite at the catch-up clinics.

Catch-up Vaccine Clinic Questions

No. Students can still catch-up on the second doses of both hepatitis B and HPV. The second dose is recommended to be given a minimum of six months after the first dose, however having a longer than recommended interval between vaccine doses will still provide the same immunity. No students will need to start their vaccine doses over.

The following vaccines will be provided at the catch-up clinics:

  • Meningitis Vaccine Vaccine name: Men-C-ACYW135; Vaccine Brand: Nimenrix®
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine: Vaccine name: HPV-9; Vaccine Brand: Gardasil®-9
  • Hepatitis B Vaccine: Vaccine name: Hepatitis B; Vaccine Brand: Engerix®-B/ Recombivax-HB®

Catch-up clinics for students who attend private and French-language schools are still being planned. An update will be provided directly through your school as soon as these clinic dates have been confirmed. We appreciate your patience as we continue to schedule more clinics to ensure all Grade 7 and 8 students in Hamilton have the opportunity to get their vaccines up-to-date.

No. Students can attend the catch-up clinic for their elementary school during the time slot indicated in the clinic chart (see section ‘Catch-up clinics: dates and locations by feeder school’ on this page for your school’s clinic information).

If you are unable to attend the catch-up clinic scheduled for your elementary school please contact the Vaccine Program to discuss other vaccination options: 905-546-2424 extension 7556.

No. Consent forms will not be completed ahead of time. Consent will be obtained onsite at the catch-up clinics.

Yes, primary health care providers can provide Hepatitis B, HPV and Meningococcal ACYW-135 vaccines. They are provincially funded and free of charge, however, these vaccines will have to be ordered for your child, so please contact your healthcare provider if you are interested in this option. To discuss other vaccination options, you can phone Hamilton Public Health at 905-546-2424 ext. 7556.

No. Only students in Grade 7 and 8 will be eligible to receive vaccines at the catch-up clinics. If your other children need vaccines, please contact your primary healthcare provider. If you need a primary care provider in Hamilton, you can find one through needadoc.ca

Hamilton Public Health is continuing to work with Ministry of Health related to the enforcement of mandatory vaccines under the Immunization of Students and Pupils Act (ISPA).  There has been no decision yet regarding changes to enforcement of ISPA, however any updates will be communicated to schools and families.

For information on Grade 7 vaccines and the diseases they prevent please see our fact sheet (PDF, 594 KB).
