"The use of the schools as a site to immunize children and teens is re-emerging as a cost-effective strategy that has benefits for health and school performance. This article reviews some of the evidence, discusses experiences in Canada and other countries, and identifies some examples of good programs. One example is the use of the HPV vaccine to prevent cancer. All parents have the right to accessible, convenient and cost-effective health services for their children". - Immunization, Infections and the School's Role in Vaccinations
