Visit Immunize Canada about the ImmunizeCA app

Children are more at risk of contracting communicable diseases because of their age, their personal hygiene and because of close contact with other children.  Some childhood diseases can be very dangerous to children and sometimes fatal.  In Ontario, children can receive vaccines against most childhood diseases free of charge.
You need to inform the Eastern Ontario Health Unit every time your child receives a new vaccine. 

For more information or to report that your child has received a vaccine, call 613-933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120 and ask for the Health Line. 

Childhood Diseases

Immunization Clinics : You can get routine vaccines for children at the weekly Immunization Clinics.

Watch Me Grow : Watch Me Grow is a drop-in centre for parents of 0 to 5 year olds.
