Immunization

Immunization

Did you receive a notice from the Halton Region Health Department asking for immunization information?

Some families with children born in 1998-99 recently received a notice in the mail from the Halton Region Health Department because the Region does not have up-to-date immunization records for their child/children. If you have received this notice we are requiring you to do one of the following in order to update your child’s immunization record:

  • Go to your doctor to get required immunizations and update the Halton Region Health Department; OR
  • For students unable to see a physician, the Halton Region Health Department is also hosting immunization clinics in some schools. Information about the dates and times of these clinics was provided on the notice mailed to your home. Halton Region is also hosting four immunization clinics (one in each of our communities) this month to help students born in 1998-99 catch up on the immunizations indicated on their notice. These clinics are open by appointment only and you must register in advance; OR
  • If your child’s immunizations are up-to-date, please update the Halton Region Health Department; OR
  • If your child will not be immunized due to medical or religious/conscience reasons, please submit an exemption form the Halton Region Health Department.

If you have questions about how to update your child’s immunization record, please visit halton.ca/immunize or dial 311.

International Day of Commemoration in Memory of Victims of the Holocaust

elly gotzThe Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say “never again”. Loyola will observe the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust with guest speaker Elly Gotz. Elly is a survivor of the Dachau concentration camp. He lost many family members and friends in the Holocaust. On March 3, Elly will visit Loyola and speak to our Grade 12 students about the Holocaust within the context of justice and forgiveness.

“The Shoah teaches us that we must have maximum vigilance, to be able to intervene quickly in defence of human dignity and peace.” Pope Francis
