You may also need your immunization record for:

Every time you or your child gets a vaccine, report it here so that you have a complete record of your immunizations and they are submitted to your local Public Health unit.
When reporting student immunization records, you will need your child’s yellow immunization card or a record from their doctor that includes the following information:
