Consent for immunizations 

Consent to health care under the Care Consent Act, applies to a person of any age. That means that a person of any age can consent to their own health care as long as they are capable of understanding and appreciating the consequences of that decision.(s.6 (4) CCA) 

For the grade 9 immunization program, efforts will be first made to obtain parental/representative consent. If a student presents with or without parent/representative consent, it is the health care provider's professional responsibility to inform them about their right to provide consent on their own behalf despite the consent/refusal to consent given by the parent(s).
