In the 2016/17 school year, up-to-date immunization coverage among students in Middlesex-London schools was lower than coverage across the province as a whole for hepatitis B, HPV, and meningococcal ACYW-135.

Up-to-date coverage for all three vaccines was lower than the national target of 90% in the most recent school year.
