K2 Vaccination requirements

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been looking at the CDC vaccine schedule and am unclear as to what are guidelines and what are requirements when it comes to the vaccines. My son will be 12 in August, and would be getting his Hep B and Meningitis vaccines free in the Grade 7 school year if we are here long enough for that to happen. The guidelines suggest that he get these and also Hep A. Are these required for his medical with Dr Seiden? Or are they just guidelines and not required vaccines like here in Ontario? I really don't want to fork over several hundred dollars for vaccines that he either doesn't need (hep a is really not a risk here or in the US) or that he'll be getting in another year anyway.

I on the other hand, did get my Tdap shot today, and am going to have titres for my other vaccines, being a nurse, I have everything else already.

I know this doesn't help much but I wasn't required to get HepA, and I just had the regular school-mandated and booster shots, plus a voluntary meningitis one in grade 12 and an MMR that my Dr. gave me for free in May. Not sure about the other vaccines since your son is young.

Did you look at the link to Dr. Seidens? http://panelphysicians.com/

Going by that page it looks like he will need those vaccines. Maybe you could call Dr. Seiden's and ask if they know what the procedure would be (or try e-mailing them, they give prompt e-mail replies.) I guess since you're a nurse you'd know if OHIP won't cover the vaccines yet. Well, you haven't got NOA2 yet (according to your timeline) so your medical will probably not be in August- OHIP won't cover them as soon as your son turns 12 even if you try to get them from somewhere other than school? :/

Thanks for the great replies, I actually hadn't seen that Dr Seiden's link before! Just the one on here linking to the panel physicians through the CDC! Turns out that none of us need Hep A, I don't need Hep B even, though I do already have it for work, lol. As to the Hep B and the Menjugate for him, no OHIP doesn't cover them at all, it's Public Health that does, and only through the school year, so that's more money out of pocket.

Also, one of my patients is emigrating for work to New York, and registered her kids for school there, and the school board requires them to have School physicals, which we charge 55 $ for. (she has 3 kids) So now, I'm off and scrambling to find out ahead of time what he needs to register for school there, even though it will be later in the school year, I'd like to know ahead of time so that my doctor here can do them rather than trying to find a doctor in the US to do it. Hopefully we don't need it.

Man, this Visa thing gets expensive doesn't it? Also interesting in the Dr Seiden site you linked me to is that it costs 25$ less in Montreal than in Ontario... anyone know why? (just for curiosity?)

Not sure why the charge is different! I went to Medisys in Montreal and it was cheaper than Dr Seiden. Medisys gives the xray on a CD and Seiden doesn't that might be why? more expensive for an Xray print than an electronic file?
