Immunization Clinics

NEW Do you have questions about measles (MMR) vaccine recommendations and eligibility?

All individuals, whether or not they are travelling, should ensure they are immunized according to the Publicly Funded Immunization Schedules for Ontario

As per the Canadian Immunization Guide (CIG), the following is recommended prior to travel:

  • Infants 6 to 11 months of age: one dose of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine (two additional doses are required at ≥ 1 year of age).
  • Individuals born in or after 1970: two doses of MMR.
  • Adults born before 1970: one dose of MMR.

To ensure two doses of MMR before travel, children < 4 years of age who have received one dose (according to the routine schedule) should be considered for an early second dose of MMR.

The Public Health Agency of Canada provides updated travel health notices and information on measles cases.

* Please follow up with your family physician if you would like more information or to arrange an appointment. If you do not have a physician or are unable to see them, please click the button below to book an appointment at one of our MMR clinics.

Note: At this time MMR clinics are only available in Barrie, Gravenhurst and Huntsville.

Catch up, Keep up, Stay on Track!

Getting vaccinated is an important way to keep ourselves and others safe and healthy from serious and sometimes life-threatening diseases. Protect yourself and others around you by making sure you get all recommended publicly funded vaccines on time.

Routine Immunization Clinics

Publicly funded vaccines are offered at clinics located in all health unit offices. We provide vaccines for infants, children, youth and adults who are eligible or overdue for routine immunizations and who do not have access to vaccines through a health care provider. These vaccines are available by appointment only. You will need a separate appointment for each person being immunized.

*If you do not have an immunization record, are not sure which vaccines you require or are anxious and need additional support from the nurse, please call so we can book a longer appointment time for you 1-877-721-7520 (toll free) or 1-705-721-7520, Monday through Friday 8:30a.m. to 4:30p.m.

Other Clinics Available:

All persons attending a Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit community, office or school-based vaccination clinic will be required to wear a mask. Masks will be made available at the entrance to all our clinics. There is limited space within the vaccination clinic in order to maintain physical distancing. If you need a support person to accompany you, we recommend you bring only one person.
