What vaccines does my child need?

Each province or territory has an immunization schedule that explains which vaccines your child should receive and when they should be given. The cost of vaccines included in the provincial and territorial immunization schedules is covered by the government, so your child can receive them free of charge.

Vaccinations can help protect your child from 14 serious diseases: pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease, measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, chickenpox, and human papillomavirus infection. Some of these vaccines are given together in a single shot.

Although the timing of doses varies between provinces, provincial health authorities agree that children should receive the following vaccines to protect against 14 serious diseases:

There are other vaccines that are not part of provincial or territorial vaccination schedules. The cost of these vaccines is currently not covered by the government. However, this does not mean that these vaccines should not be given to your child. Discuss with your child's health care professional about whether your child should receive any of these vaccines.

Your child must receive all vaccine doses on time in order to get the maximum protection offered by the vaccine. Talk to your child's health care professional if your child misses a vaccine, or if you have any questions about which vaccines your child needs and when your child should receive them.
