Toronto Public Health is running free immunization clinics from March 1 to May 30 to help get children immunized. Twenty-seven clinics are being held in four locations during this three-month period. Parents whose children have not been immunized are encouraged to bring their children to one of these clinics.

"Immunization is an easy way to protect the health of your child and prevent the spread of potentially life threatening illnesses to others," said Dr. Rita Shahin, Associate Medical Officer of Health. "It also prevents your child from being suspended from class for incomplete immunization records."

In Ontario, children are required by law to be immunized against measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, and polio. Children who are not immunized and do not have a valid exemption can be suspended from school.
