The Ontario government will require children who attend elementary or secondary school this fall to be vaccinated against three additional illnesses.

Before heading back to class, students will need to provide proof of immunization against meningococcal disease, whooping cough and, if born in 2010 or later, chickenpox.

Parents will not have to pay out of pocket for the vaccines.
