A return to in-person learning this September for HWCDSB children and youth is a top priority. As a community we know too well the impact that COVID-19, remote learning and public health restrictions have had on the mental and emotional well-being of children and youth. As the Delta variant continues to circulate locally and we see the challenges it has caused elsewhere, particularly among the unvaccinated, we all have a job to do in protecting those that can’t be vaccinated, including children under 12.
To provide easy access to a vaccine, the HWCDSB has partnered with Hamilton Public Health Services to hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at:St. John Henry Newman Catholic Secondary School
– 127 Grays Rd., Stoney Creek, L8G 3V3Friday, September 17, 2021 – 1:30-4:00pm, and 5:00-7:00 pm
The clinic is available to students, families and staff from St. John Henry Newman Catholic Secondary School, plus eligible students (born 2009 or earlier) from St. John Henry Newman elementary feeder schools. First and second doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will be provided. Walk-ins are welcome. No appointments necessary.
