COVID-19 Vaccination for Children 5-11

The Government of Ontario, in partnership with the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, is working to improve access and increase vaccination rates for children ages five to 11 on a voluntary basis to further protect against COVID-19 and variants. One of the strategies to do that is to host vaccination clinics in schools during the school day in partnership with Toronto Public Health and/or other health care organizations, where students would have written consent from their parent/guardian to receive the vaccination. Learn more about these clinics and access the consent form.

There are multiple places to get a COVID-19 vaccine, including at mobile school clinics outside of school hours, developed in partnership between Team Toronto partners, Toronto Public Health (TPH) and the city’s four public school boards, including the TDSB. TPH is working to bring COVID-19 vaccinations or access to nearby vaccinations to all public schools in the city.

Parents/guardians and children will receive notice from their school when a clinic is hosted. Specific school vaccine clinic details will be sent in a letter from principals, for their school only.

COVID-19 Staff Vaccination Status

The Board of Trustees has voted to rescind the COVID-19 Vaccination Procedure for Employees, Trustees and Other Individuals (PR734) and lift the mandatory requirement for staff to be vaccinated, as of March 14. This move is in line with the provincial direction on health and safety measures and follows consultation with TDSB union and federation partners. To date, more than 90% of TDSB staff are fully vaccinated. In addition, older students have high rates of vaccination and numbers continue to increase in students aged 5 to 11.
