Vaccine update for players turning 12 in 2022
Submitted By Erin Davis on Sunday, December 19, 2021
An update for families with children that will turn 12 in 2022 (birth year 2010) that may be wondering how the vaccine requirements will impact your child from playing hockey for the rest of the season . Although OMHA's policy currently does not require children born in 2010 or later to be vaccinated, Southwestern Public Health does.

SWPH’s letter of instruction regarding vaccination for sports and recreational facilities was updated on November 16th, which states that, “youth who are 11 years of age turning 12 in 2022 will have a 12-week grace period from the time they become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or when they turn 12 years of age to show proof of vaccination to enter sport and recreational facilities. This grace period will allow a reasonable opportunity for these children to be fully vaccinated.” 

Being that the children born in 2010 became eligible for their first vaccine dose around the third week of November our best guess that they could likely have to show proof of vaccination early February.
