Immunization

The Importance of Immunizing

Immunizations, also known as vaccinations, are a safe and effective way to protect against many serious diseases. The best way to protect yourself and your family is by following Ontario’s recommended immunization schedule. The risk of having a serious side effect from a vaccine is far less than the risk of getting sick from a preventable disease. Understanding the facts about vaccines will help you make an informed decision about protecting you and your family.

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit offer immunization services to people of all ages living in the Tri-County area. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit provides immunizations in Health Unit and school clinics for individuals who are eligible. In partnership with our area schools, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit also collects and maintains student immunization records for all students in the Tri-County area.
