The Importance of Immunizing

Immunizations, also known as vaccinations, are a safe and effective way to protect against many serious diseases. Vaccines work with your body’s immune system to prevent serious illness and possible long-term consequences from the disease.

In Ontario, required and recommended vaccines are provided free of charge. Ontario’s routine immunization schedule outlines the expectations for which vaccines and how often they should be given.

Immunization Records

In partnership with our area schools and daycares, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit collects and maintains children’s immunization records.

This meets legal requirements under provincial legislation. It supports a quick response if a child or staff member in a licenced daycare or school does contract a communicable disease. We can quickly identify who is at risk and take steps to prevent the further spread of the disease.

You are able to view your child’s immunization records stored by public health through Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON).
