COVID-19 Vaccines

All youth turning 12 in 2021 and older, are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. This will help to ensure even more students have the opportunity to receive the vaccine and ensure strong protection against COVID-19 and the Delta variant as they return to school.

Vaccines are safe, effective and are the best way to protect your child, your family, and your community from COVID-19. Vaccines will help students and families to safely resume normal activities as soon as possible.

Most children with COVID-19 have mild symptoms or none at all. However, some children with COVID-19 can get very sick. Children can also spread COVID-19 to other people. Vaccinating children protects them from getting sick and reduces virus spread within their household and the community.

Vaccinations for Youth Born in 2009 or Earlier

COVID-19 Staff Vaccination Status

The Ministry of Education requires all school board employees in Ontario to disclose their COVID-19 vaccination status. Below, you will find TDSB staff disclosure data as of September 22, 2021. 

Total number of individuals to which the policy will apply: 40,239

Total number and percentage of individuals who have attested to being fully vaccinated: 32,251 or 80%. Of those that have completed the attestation form, 89% are fully vaccinated.

Total number and percentage of individuals with approved medical exemptions for not being fully vaccinated: 0 or 0%

The number and percentage of individuals who have not yet submitted an attestation form: 3,993 or 9.9%

The TDSB continues to contact staff directly to complete the attestation form. It’s thought that many of the those who have not yet completed the form are casual employees who may not have worked for the school board yet this school year. Of note, the TDSB is currently in the process of implementing a Mandatory Vaccine Procedure for staff, trustees and other individuals who have direct contact with staff or students at a TDSB workplace.
