British Columbia Specific Information
Immunizations, also known as vaccinations, help protect you from getting an infectious disease. When you get vaccinated, you help protect others as well. Vaccines are very safe. It is much safer to get the vaccine than an infectious disease.
For information about vaccine safety, visit ImmunizeBC. If your child was born in B.C., you should have received a Child Health Passport (PDF 415KB) that contains an immunization record. If you did not receive one, you can request one from your local health unit.
If you have questions or concerns about immunizations, speak to your health care provider or call 8-1-1 to speak to a registered nurse anytime, every day of the year.
