The return to in-person learning for children and youth is a top priority for the HWCDSB. As a community we know too well the impact that COVID-19, remote learning and public health restrictions have had on the mental and emotional well-being of children and youth. As the Delta variant continues to circulate locally and we see the challenges it has caused elsewhere, particularly among the unvaccinated, we all have a job to do in protecting those that can’t be vaccinated, including children under 12.
To provide easy access to a vaccine, the HWCDSB has partnered with HPHS to hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School
on Saturday, September 18, 2021
from 10am-12pm and 1-3pm. The clinic is available to eligible students (born 2009 or earlier), families and staff from St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Elementary School.
First and second doses of a COVID-19 vaccine are available. Walk-ins are welcome. No appointments necessary.
Note: If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should not attend the clinic.COVID-19 Vaccine Information Sheet for Youth 12-17What to bring with you to the clinic:
