Hundreds of southern Ontario students face suspension over outdated shots

SIMCOE, Ont. - Health officials in southern Ontario say hundreds of high school students could face suspension if they don't get their booster shots.

Wendy Holmes, program co-ordinator for the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit, says 388 students are on notice.

She says the students are either behind on their shots or haven't turned in up-to-date immunization records.

They have until April 23 to comply.

Holmes says there's no backlog at the local clinic and students should have no problem catching up.
