Meningococcal vaccine was given in school to grade 7 students. It is important to get the vaccine, because you will need it to attend school. Meningitis is a serious disease of the brain and spinal cord that can be prevented by getting the meningococcal vaccine. If you can't remember receiving this vaccine in grade 7, call us at 416-392-1250. Toronto Public Health is offering free summer immunization clinics to Toronto students.
