Keeping childhood immunization records

The Child Health Passport is a passport-sized booklet for parents to use to record important health information about their child, including height and weight, illnesses, accidents, allergies, hospitalizations, and immunizations. The passport also provides safety tips and a space to record findings for hearing, dental, and vision checks.

 

Where to get a Child Health Passport

The passport is available for all parents of newborns in British Columbia. Parents typically receive a Child Health Passport in their birth packs, or they can be obtained through your local Community Health Centre.
