Ottawa Public Health Immunization Record

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reviewing the immunization records of 150,000 students attending elementary and secondary schools in Ottawa to make sure the information is up-to-date. Updates on immunizations are crucial information to protect the health of students during an infectious disease outbreak, such as measles.

Under the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA), students attending school in Ontario are required to be vaccinated against nine diseases or have a valid exemption. In the months ahead, OPH will be sending letters to parents if their child’s records are not up-to-date. A suspension from school may be issued if a student’s record remains incomplete.

A suspension from school may be issued if a student’s record remains incomplete. Written notices from Ottawa Public Health for Ottawa-Carleton District School Board students are now being mailed to parents.

To avoid school suspensions, parents who receive a letter requesting immunization information can contact OPH by phone at 613-580-6744 or submit immunization information online, by fax (613-580-9660), by mail or by the ImmunizeCA app. Parents can visit parentinginottawa.ca/immunization for more details about how to submit their child’s immunization information to Ottawa Public Health. Suspension letters for OCDSB students will be sent home starting in January 2016.

If you receive a letter from Ottawa Public Health, your cooperation and support to respond quickly is very much appreciated. Your efforts will help protect not only your child but will help ensure all our children are better protected against infectious diseases.
