Where to get your child vaccinated

You can get your child vaccinated by visiting your doctor or a walk–in clinic.

Peel Public Health offers the following clinic services:

Take your child's yellow vaccination card with you to the appointment. If you don't have a yellow card, your doctor or health care provider can give you one.

If your child does not have an Ontario Health card, Community Health Centres may offer routine vaccines. Contact the Centre to confirm eligibility:

If your child has Interim Federal Health coverage, take your child to a health care provider that offers this service for vaccination. Vaccinations for a child with an Interim Federal Health number are free. Find a health care provider.

When to get your child vaccinated

Children receive specific vaccines at different ages.

Access Ontario's childhood vaccination schedule to find out which vaccines your child should receive.

By law, children who attend primary or secondary school in Ontario must be vaccinated against certain diseases. Learn more about vaccine requirements for children in Ontario.

Several vaccines can be given at the same time. If you have any questions, speak with your family doctor or health care provider.
