Immunize your children for better health
Immunizing your child is a safe and effective way to prevent many serious childhood diseases. In order to attend school in Ontario, your child must have an up-to-date immunization record. When you registered your child for kindergarten, you provided a copy of your child's immunization record. The school sends this information to Peel Health.
After kindergarten registration, keeping your child's records up-to-date is a parent’s responsibility. Students who are not completely immunized and do not have a valid exemption may not be allowed to attend school.
When your child is vaccinated, you must contact Peel Health to provide the information. To ensure your child's records are up-to-date:
· call Health Line Peel at 905-799-7700; Caledon residents can call 905-584-2216 toll-free. Translation services are available.
· use an online form available at www.immunizepeel.ca
For more information on all vaccines and schedules for young children, students and parents, call Health Line Peel or visit www.peelregion.ca.
