Reporting Vaccines

Notice

 

Effective immediately, the City of Hamilton will no longer be accepting vaccine records in person. Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) education sessions will be temporarily cancelled. Please call 905-540-5250 to rebook your education session. Suspension clinics and community clinics for vaccination will also be temporarily cancelled.

Why report vaccines to Public Health?

Parents are responsible for notifying Public Health each time their daycare or school-aged child receives a vaccine. In the event of an outbreak, Public Health needs to have the vaccine information for all daycare and school-aged children in order to protect the community from vaccine preventable diseases.
