BW NEWS STUDENTS AT THIS HIGH SCHOOL MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO CHICKENPOX BRYAN MYERS Students at a Milton school could be at risk of ill- ness. The Halton Region Health Department has confirmed a case of chick- enpox (varicella) at. Craig Kielburger Secondary School (1151 Ferguson Dr.) in Milton. Parents of students re- ceived a notice that stu- dents and the staff may have been exposed to the vi- rus that causes chickenpox as late as Dec. 6. Symptoms may start with a fever, headache, aches and pains, and loss of appetite. One or two days later, an itchy red rash with raised blisters appears. Staff and students ex- posed to chickenpox should watch for signs and symp- toms up to Dec. 27. The health department reminds residents not to visit a doctor's office with- out calling ahead to prevent others from getting sick. Children typically re- ceive two doses of chicken- pox vaccine, one at 15 months and another at four to six years old. The vaccine is mandatory for all chil- dren who attend child care and school in Ontario. If you have had two doses of the vaccine or have had chickenpox already, you are considered immune. Pregnant women, new- borns, and immuno-com- promised people should consult with their doctor as soon as possible to make sure they are protected. Vaccines received with 96. hours of exposure can provide protection against chickenpox, vaccines re- ceived between 96 hours and 10 days after exposure may help reduce the sever- ity of disease. The vaccine protects be- tween 70 and 90 per cent of people against infection. More information is available at 905-825-6000 or by calling 311. ~ GOT PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND?
