Talk to your child's health care professional (HCP) about when your child should receive their vaccinations. Your child's HCP will recommend vaccination according to the immunization schedule for your province or territory. The immunization schedule will explain which vaccinations your child should receive and when. The timing of some vaccinations can vary between provinces, so it's important to check with your child's HCP.
Make sure your child gets the best possible protection from their childhood vaccines - complete all vaccinations on time, and contact your child's HCP if your child misses a vaccine appointment. Ask your child's HCP for an immunization record, a small card where you can record the vaccinations your child has received. Bring your child's immunization record to every vaccination appointment, and make sure the HCP or nurse updates the record to show the vaccine doses your child has already received. Daycare centres and schools usually require a copy of your child's immunization record, so store it in a safe place!
