Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) – Enforcement Resuming
- Under the ISPA, guardians of students attending school in Ontario must provide proof of immunization, or a valid exemption from immunization to KFL&A Public Health for designated diseases.
- Students who do not have an up-to-date immunization record or valid exemption on file at KFL&A Public Health, will recieve a notice the end of January.
- Due to delays and interruptions in receiving immunizations during the COVID-19 pandemic, enforcement of the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) program was not implemented in 2021 or 2022. The ISPA immunization record review is underway, and the suspension enforcement process will resume this year.
Please forward any related ISPA questions to KFL&A Public Health’s Immunization Team
at (613) 549-1232, ext. 1451.
