As parents we all want to keep our children safe and healthy. You can do this by keeping your children up to date with routine health care and by making sure they receive their on-time vaccinations. Vaccines are the safest and most effective way to help build up your immune system and protect you against disease.
Visit Ontario’s Routine Immunization Schedule to learn more about Ontario’s free vaccine program and what vaccines are recommended at certain ages and stages.
Report Your Child’s Vaccine Records to Us!
Your doctor will provide you with a yellow immunization card. Bring this card with you each time your child receives a vaccine so you can keep track of their immunizations.
Also, as a parent and guardian you need to report immunizations received by your child to your local public health unit. Health care providers, including doctors, do not report immunization dates to us.
Any time your child receives a vaccine, please contact our immunization line at 519-258-2146 ext. 1222. Visit our immunization record page to learn more about reporting vaccinations or viewing your child’s immunization record.
