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.
