Immunization clinics for newcomers
As a newcomer to Canada, you can protect yourself and your children by keeping your immunizations up-to-date and reporting them to the Region of Peel.
If your child is an international student or has an Interim Federal Health (IFH) number, take your child to your family doctor or a walk-in clinic for an immunization.
- Immunizations for a child with an IFH number are free.
- Immunizations for international students who are registering for or attending school on a student visa may be available at cost or be covered by a private health insurance plan.
Region immunization clinics
We offer immunization clinics only for children who don't have an Ontario Health Card (OHIP) number but need to be immunized to register for school or child care.
Immunizations at clinics are available by appointment only.
Call 905-799-7700 to book your appointment. Caledon 905-584-2216.
Drop-in clients will not be accepted.
Before coming to the booked appointment:
- Bring documents that show your child's name and date of birth, such as a passport or Permanent Resident card.
- Come with your child if they are 13 years old or younger.
- You can bring someone with you who can read and understand English.
- Your child will be getting a needle. Make sure they wear a short sleeve shirt and eat a good meal before visiting.
- After the needle you will need to wait 15 minutes.
- You will receive documentation from the nurse to help you keep track of your child's immunizations.
