Update on COVID-19 Vaccinations for Youth (12-17)

Over the past week, Cree School Board students and parents have received information about the vaccine clinics in our schools. We look forward to supporting public health by hosting these clinics.
Here is some general information for youth who wish to get a vaccine at school. Full instructions can also be found at creehealth.org.

For youth aged 12-13
  • Parents must complete a consent form and return it to the school.
  • To receive an electronic proof of vaccination, parents must book an appointment online for their child through the Clic-Santé Eeyou Istchee website.
For youth aged 14-17
  • Students can consent to a vaccination on their own.
  • To receive an electronic proof of vaccination, they must book an appointment through the Clic-Santé Eeyou Istchee website.

Once you have completed these steps, your school will provide you with an official appointment time. After your vaccination, you will receive both paper and digital proof of vaccination.

Thank you for continuing to follow public health measures! We look forward to welcoming public health into our schools in the coming days in support of their vaccination clinics.
