The last time it was checked, less than 1/4 of the schools in the Lower Mainland had 90% or more vaccination rates. When vaccine rates fall below 90%, everyone is now at risk, even those who are fully vaccinated.

Currently we do not request vaccine records to enroll in our schools. The current policy is that if there is an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease, those without vaccines are requested (but not forced to) stay home. The biggest problem with this is that most of the diseases (chicken pox, measles etc) have a 10 day incubation period in which the patient can be contagious without showing symptoms. This puts our weakest children (cancer patients, immuno compromised) at great risk.

Each year the number of outbreaks increase. It's time to get back to eradicating these preventable diseases and protecting our Province. 

We parents, friends and family of the students of British Columbia request to amend our current enrollment policy to include mandatory vaccinations - except with medical exemption.

Thank you for your time and support!
