RBSS Grade 9 student Parents/Guardians
Watch for immunization consent packages for grade 9 students that will be sent home early in the fall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students in Grade 9 will be offered immunizations through a booked appointment at the health unit. Please review the consent packages, fill out the consent forms and return to the school. Please then contact the Westshore Health Unit at 250-519-3490 to book your appointment. If you have any questions please ask to speak with a School Health Nurse.
A grade 9 student can make an informed decision about immunization regardless of their parent/guardian/representative decision to consent or refuse immunization.
