Public Health Nurses will be doing routine school immunizations (ie protection against tetanus, diphtheria, measles etc.) over the next few weeks. Fort Vermilion School Division has worked with Public Health for a number of years to help facilitate access to routine immunizations and provide an opportunity to catch up on any that are overdue.
Alberta Health Services recommends the following immunization schedule: Routine Immunization Schedule
