COVID 19 Vaccine: Immunization Clinics for Children aged 5 to 11 Years Old

Public Health will start to offer in schools Dose 2 of the COVID 19 Vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old. Public Health will be at Holy Ghost School on April 19th from 9am to 12 pm.

For this school-based immunization program, parents/caregivers will need to complete either an eConsent (electronic consent) form or paper consent form if you would like your child to receive the COVID-19 vaccine (Dose 1 or Dose 2) at school during regular school hours. The eConsent form is available at immunizationconsent.manitoba.ca . The printable or online consent form available at protectmb.ca/youthcovid-19-vaccines will also be accepted. For households that cannot access or print an online consent form, we will have the paper consent form and fact sheet available for you in the office upon request.

If you complete the paper consent form, please have your child return this form to their school by March 31, 2022. If you complete the eConsent form, please complete this form online by April 8, 2022.

NOTE: Please complete a consent (eConsent or paper consent form) ONLY if you would like your child to receive the COVID 19 immunization during regular school hours.

Please review information about the vaccine at manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/resources.html. You can also find information and resources at protectmb.ca/youth-covid-19-vaccines on how to prepare your child for immunization, including techniques to reduce feelings of anxiety, pain and fear of getting needles.
