Child Care Operators are required by the Child Care and Early Years Act (2014) to collect and provide a current record of immunization to the health unit for each child in attendance. The operator must keep a copy of the record.
If a parent chooses not to immunize, the Child Care Operator must direct the parent to contact the health unit to discuss and obtain the appropriate paperwork.
Instructions for submitting immunization information can be found here.
Forms to be completed to meet the immunization requirements can be found here.
The health unit is required to assess each child’s immunization record and to make recommendations to the parent/guardian.
In the event of a vaccine preventable disease outbreak, the health unit determines the children at risk and will contact their parents/guardians.
