Getting your toddler immunized is the best way to protect against many serious diseases.  

The best way to stay up to date is to follow the schedule in your BC Child Health Passport.You can get a Child Health Passport from your local health unit


British Columbia provides publicly funded immunizations to protect children against:

  • Measles, mumps, rubella
  • Hepatitis B
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Polio
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b disease (Hib)
  • Chicken pox
  • Pneumococcal and meningococcal diseases
  • Human papilloma virus (for girls)

The basic schedule for immunizations is listed in the Child Health Passport, but it can change. If you have questions, talk to your health care provider, visit www.ImmunizeBC.ca or call HealthLinkBC at 8-1-1.
