Attention Parents/Guardians of Kindergarten and Grade 1 Students
This is a reminder that parents and guardians are required to provide up to date immunization records on all students attending school in BC. According to the BC immunization schedule children are due for routine immunizations between 4-6 years of age. Public Health will be providing immunization opportunities in the New Year for this age group. If your child received immunizations outside of a Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) Public Health clinics we will not have their updated record. If you have not provided the school or public health unit with a record please submit your child’s immunization history to the email below ASAP. You can also leave a copy at the school for the Public Health Nurse to pick up. For further information on immunization refer to the ImmunizeBC website at www.immunizebc.ca.
To submit your child’s record by email send a photo of the record to mychildsimmshistoryVC@vch.ca. Please include the following information in the email:
- Your child’s full name, date of birth and care card number
- Your address and phone number
