About School Entry Immunization Requirements

The purpose of the immunization requirements for school entry are to protect students, staff, and the visiting public against vaccine-preventable diseases within schools.

These rules establish minimum immunization requirements for attendance at public or independent kindergartens, elementary, secondary and post-secondary schools.
