Immunize your child

Summer immunization campaign for Kindergarten, Grade 6 and Grade 9 students

VCH Public Health will lead Vancouver-based immunization clinics throughout the summer for students who have missed their Kindergarten, Grade 6 or Grade 9 vaccines during the 2019/2020 or 2020/2021 school years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Note: if your child is going into Grade 6 or Grade 9 in the 2021/2022 school year, there will be opportunities for your child to get immunized at school.

Refer to the schedule below for clinic locations, dates and hours of operation. Online appointment booking is available.

Please note, we are unable to offer the COVID-19 vaccine at these clinics at this time. For information about getting your child immunized against COVID-19, please visit www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/s/ or call 1-833-838-2323.

To support physical distancing, we ask that only one parent or guardian per student attend the clinic. Please do not attend the clinic if you have symptoms of COVID-19, have travelled in the last 14 days, or you have been asked to self-isolate by Public Health as a close contact of someone who has tested positive.

If you do not have access to this online booking option or need assistance, please call your local community health centre listed below:

Thank you for taking the time to ensure your child's immunizations are up to date. For more information on the school based immunization program and vaccine schedules see immunizebc.ca.



Immunizations are your child's best protection now and in the future. Childhood vaccines work quickly to protect against very infectious diseases. When you immunize your child, you're protecting them against meningitis, pneumonia, paralysis, deafness, seizures, brain damage, cancer or even death.

Kindergarten immunization clinics

VCH offers free immunication clinics for children, starting at age four, who are entering kindergarten in the fall.
Keeping immunization records

Keep a copy of your child's immunization records in a safe place and take it with you each time. 

New to British Columbia?

A child without an immunization record, or proof of having had a disease, is considered unimmunized and unprotected. If you are moved here from another country or province, try to get your child's record sent to you.

Bring your child's immunization record to a community health centre to check:

  • What immunizations your child has received.

  • What routine childhood immunizations available, which may be different than your home country or province. Any missing will be provided free.
