Attention Grade 1 to 3 Parents: It’s time to update your child’s immunization record Grade 1 to 3 Parents: It’s time to update your child’s immunization record<p>​</p><p>You must update the local health unit any time your child receives a new immunization - like their 4 to 6 year booster. If your child is not immunized, you will need to provide the health unit with a current medical exemption or affidavit to keep on file. <strong>The health unit can suspend students whose immunization records are not up to date and who do not have an affidavit or medical exemption on file.</strong> Before the summer holidays, take a few moments to make sure your child's record is updated. Here's how:</p><ol><li><em>Check:</em> Your child's yellow immunization card.</li><li><em>Contact:</em> Your child's family physician or healthcare provider to obtain records or to get missing vaccinations.</li><li><em>Share:</em> Visit the health unit's website at <a href=""><span lang="EN-CA" style="text-decoration:underline;"></span></a> (click on 'Topics' – 'Immunization') to enter the complete record, or fax a completed record to 705-726-3962.</li></ol><p>Every student must have an up-to-date immunization record on file at the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit – it's the law. For more information, or to speak with a nurse on the health unit's immunization team, call 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520.<br> <br></p>
