COVID-19 Vaccination for Children ages 5-11

The COVID-19 vaccination is now authorized by Health Canada for children five and older. Getting young people vaccinated helps protect them and the people around them. 

 

It is important for families to be informed about their decision whether to vaccinate. We encourage parents to talk to their children about health-related decisions. 

 

Public Health and the Ministry of Education have requested that we share with you this helpful information sheet from the BCCDC about COVID-19 vaccination for children ages 5-11: http://www.bccdc.ca/Health-Info-Site/Documents/COVID-19_vaccine/Vaccine_children_5_11.pdf

 

Please find below an informative presentation hosted by joint BC DPACs from Canadian Medical Association president, Dr. Katharine Smart, specifically about vaccines for children.

Any time a vaccine clinic is scheduled by VCH in our schools, families are provided with information in advance of the clinic. 

 

As per our regulation, we will notify parents of any future clinic dates through school correspondence and send individual student immunization consent form and immunization information home for a parent to sign and return.

 

As per our regulationALL vaccines for elementary students (Grades K-7, inclusive) must have parental consent.
