        Vaccine Information


        According to public health, vaccines are the most effective way to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in schools and communities. Public health and the North Vancouver School District continue to strongly encourage all eligible British Columbians, and particularly residents of the North Shore, to be fully vaccinated to protect themselves and those around them.
