Immunization - Vaccines

Immunization is the best protection against a number of serious illnesses.

Public Health nurses:

  • Administer vaccines for free to target or high-risk groups based on the province’s criteria for eligibility;
  • Give advice on immunization and vaccines;
  • Monitor immunization requirements for children in licensed daycares and entering school;
  • Facilitate other vaccinators’ access to tools and resources;
  • Control and coordinate reporting of adverse events following immunization (AEFI).
For information on an immunization record, contact directly the organization or the physician that administered the vaccine.
