National Immunization Awareness Week

National Immunization Awareness Week is about raising awareness around the importance of immunizations for ALL AGES.

Newborns

Does my baby need all these shots? Yes! Most babies have strong immune systems, but there are some germs that they cannot fight on their own. Vaccines reduce the risks to babies from these germs.

Teens

One way to protect your health is to keep your shots up to date. DYK you can get Hepatitis B, Meningococcal conjugate ACWY-135, Tdap, HPV and Influenza vaccines all free of charge in Ontario?

Adults/Seniors

Not Just for Kids! Vaccines provide the most effective protection against disease. As adults we require boosters for some vaccines to maintain immunity for life long protection. What vaccines do you need?

Immunization Schedule

Is it important to follow the Ontario publicly funded immunization schedule? Yes! All vaccine preventable diseases can cause serious complications, or even death. Get your shots on time to protect yourself and those around you.

Is it important to share my child's immunization record with the health unit? Yes! Sharing your child's immunization record ensures everyone is protected. Go to www.smdhu.org/immsonline to share the record with Health Unit.
