Publicly Funded Immunization Schedule for Ontario


Every child should get routine vaccinations from their health care provider according to the immunization schedule on this page. These are paid for by the Ontario government. If you do not have a health care provider, routine vaccinations are provided by your local health unit. Starting July 1, 2014 new vaccines have been added to the schedule of immunizations your child must have.

Parents will be required to provide proof of their child’s vaccinations for Meningococcal (Meningitis), Pertussis (Whooping Cough) and Varicella (Chickenpox) for those born in 2010 and later. This is in addition to the current immunization requirements of Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Tetanus and Polio.

Proof of immunization or exemption should be provided directly to Public Health. Failure to notify Public Health could result in suspension from school.

Keep track of your child’s immunizations and get reminders on your phone by going to:

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
