School Health

Our School Health program provides immunizations as well as health information and referral to school-aged children, staff and parents. Nurses also provide referrals for a variety of assessments such as dental, auditory, speech, nutrition and mental health. Individual health consultations are provided by a nurse.

Each year we publish School Health Manuals for some regions to help school staff access health care services for school-aged children and youth. View the online manual for your region below:
