Immunization is critically important to control and eliminate infectious diseases. Immunization has saved more lives in Canada in the last 50 years than any other health intervention. Immunization is necessary for two reasons:
Vaccines protect an entire population by preventing the spread of disease from one individual to another: the more people immunized the less chance for disease to circulate.
Make sure your immunizations are up to date and keep a record.
Procedure to submit either a Statement of Medical Exemption or Statement of Conscience or Religious Belief.
How to obtain a copy of your immunization record.
