Vaccination Is Not Mandatory For School Entry in Ontario

TORONTO, May 28, 2014 /CNW/ - An April 16 press release from the Ontario Ministry of Health and subsequent media reports regarding new vaccine requirements for school entry did not provide the public with vital information regarding exemptions for reasons of conscience and religion under the Immunization of School Pupils Act. Parents of Ontario school children do not have to prove they've received vaccinations designated 'required' for school entrance; if any or all of these vaccinations are not desired, a completed legal exemption form allows entrance. The only exception to the latter may be an order of temporary suspension in the case of an outbreak of one of the infectious diseases covered by the vaccination regulations.

Full details of these exemptions can be found at the VRAN website.
