School Immunizations

TBDHU continues to accept copies of immunization records online, by mail or by fax.

To report immunizations received, obtain an immunization record or view vaccines you are due for, use the Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON) system.

Students in Grades 7 through 12, including at-home learners and those who graduated in the last two years, may be missing vaccines offered through Ontario's free publicly funded vaccine program.

Information on how to catch-up can be found on the Student Routine Vaccine Catch-up Information page.
