Childhood Immunizations

Are your child’s vaccinations up-to-date?  If not, book an appointment with your family doctor or visit one of our Public Health clinics to get the vaccine(s) your child needs.

If you’re not sure what vaccines your child needs for school, see the Publicly Funded Immunization Schedule for Ontario (PDF, 8 pages, 636KB), talk to your healthcare provider or call 1-800-265-7293 ext. 4746 to speak with a nurse about questions on vaccine requirements.

Adult Vaccinations

Vaccinations are important for people of all ages, not just children because they provide the most effective protection against disease. Although we receive most vaccinations during childhood, we do not always gain lifelong immunity against all diseases. During adulthood, we require booster shots to maintain our defenses against some diseases like tetanus (lockjaw) and diphtheria.

To find out what vaccines are recommended for adults, visit theGovernment of Ontario’s Adult Vaccination page.

It takes 1-4 days for the flu symptoms to appear after exposure.
