School age immunization campaign

Vaccine Status Reporting Regulation (VSRR)

BC's new Vaccination Status Reporting Regulation came into effect on July 1, 2019.  It supports the gathering of immunization records by public health.  The regulation applies to all students in all schools within the Province's jurisdiction. This includes international students and those who are home-schooled.  It does not apply to children attending schools in First Nations communities.

Gathering this information is important.  It helps us to respond quickly to outbreaks in schools and helps everyone get back to learning as soon as possible.

Immunization record review and catch-up campaign for school age children

Public health is in the process of reviewing immunization records we have on file for all children who attend school within Vancouver Coastal boundaries. We already have complete records for many children. Thus, most families will not be contacted or need to take any action. If you are contacted, it may only mean that we need to update some information in our files.   

If you receive a letter from us, it is for one of these reasons:

  • Your child is missing one or more vaccines.
  • Your child received their vaccinations from their family doctor, or elsewhere, and our records are incomplete.
  • You recently moved to the area and we do not have your child's records.

How to provide immunization records

You can email a photo of your child's record to one of the emails below. You can also drop off a copy at your child's school or a VCH Community Health Centre. 

Central email Inbox for immunizations according to community:

Please include the following information:

  • Your child's full name, date of birth, and Care Card number
  • Your address and phone number

Where to get immunized

If your child has not had all recommended vaccines, we highly recommend that you get your child immunized. Your child can receive vaccines at Community Health Centres, or other designated immunization centres* in your community. First Nations children can also receive vaccines in their communities.
