Immunization Message from Island Health

Please see the message below from Island Health regarding the opportunity to catch up on immunizations for K-4 students:

Watch for immunization packages for students in kindergarten to grade 4 who are behind on their immunizations. Students will be offered immunizations at a public health office with the consent of a parent, guardian or representative. Parent(s), guardians or representatives will be required to accompany students to the public health immunization appointment.

Students who are up to date on their immunizations will receive a record of immunization. Please keep this record to provide to your child’s school this fall.

First Nations children who receive health services in their communities may be able to access immunization records and services at their Community Health Centers.

Please contact the local Health Unit at 250-544-2400 and ask to speak with a Public Health Nurse if you have any questions.
