image of young family Welcome! On this page you will find links to the most common questions about immunization for infants and children. The links on the left will guide you.

Immunization is recommended by the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada, all provincial and territorial Ministries of Health, and all member organizations of Immunize Canada.

The Canadian Paediatric Society has published a completely revised and updated guide for parents called Your Child’s Best Shot (4th edition)(external link). The book is available in most libraries or can be ordered online (external link). This book is highly recommended for parents and anyone else who wants to read more about immunization.

Governments and health care providers depend on the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (external link) to make specific recommendations on each vaccine approved for use in Canada. These recommendations can be found in the Canadian Immunization Guide (external link).
