  • The Hepatitis B vaccine is voluntary but strongly recommended by Peel Public Health.
  • Students will be given two doses of the vaccine 4-6 months apart throughout the school year at school-based clinics.
  • Students who miss their opportunity to get the vaccine in grade 7 will be offered the vaccine in school again in grade 8.
