What you need to know about vaccines and immunization

Adults and children are able to access immunizations/vaccines that are provided according to Ministry of Health recommendations. Immunizations can be obtained at any of the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region’s public health offices.

Why Immunize Your Child?

Immunization is one of the most important ways of keeping your child healthy. Before vaccines were available, it was not uncommon for children to die or become disabled as a result of vaccine preventable infections.

Immunization involves giving vaccine (dead or weakened germ) that helps our immune system protect us against certain diseases.

In some provinces and countries, children must be immunized before they can go to school or daycare. This fact is important if you move out of province.

Who should be immunized?

All children should be fully immunized according to the recommended schedule
