Frequently Asked Questions


Welcome to the Vaccines411 Frequently Asked Questions. This page consists of answers to some common questions we receive from our visitors.

If you are travelling outside of Canada, you may be at risk of a number of diseases that are preventable by immunization. It is important to be prepared and to know what vaccinations you may need. There are a number of components taken into consideration when deciding what vaccines you will need including your destination, duration and nature of travel, as well as your age and immunization history. It is imperative that you visit a travel clinic or consult your health care provider at least 4-6 weeks before you travel. This is important because some vaccines may take several weeks to become fully effective and others may require more than just a single dose.

For more information on travel vaccines visit our Travel Resources page where you will find useful tips, articles and web pages. Other useful pages on Vaccines411 include Flu Resources, Infants and Children Resources, Rabies Resources and Mosquito-Bite Awareness.

Vaccines work most effectively when they are administered on time, so it is important that your child not delay or miss any vaccinations. Your health care provider can give you a copy of an immunization schedule for your province which contains information about the correct age and appropriate vaccines for your child.

For more information on child vaccination visit our Infants and Children Resources page.

For detailed questions and concerns, we suggest you contact your family doctor or a vaccinating clinic. To find a clinic that immunizes young children click here and go to our Infants and Children category page on Vaccines411.ca.

If your postal code does not function, please notify us at ac.114seniccav@troppus. You can also try to change one letter or number (which still keeps you in close range). This modification should help you find the 10 closest vaccinating clinics to you.

Costs vary depending on the province, the vaccinating clinic and/or pharmacy, as well as the patient’s insurance plan. For exact prices and to compare the costs at different clinics, we suggest you contact a few of the 10 closet clinics listed for your postal code that offer the vaccine you are looking for.

Vaccinations are scheduled carefully so your child can receive the correct vaccines when their body needs them most. It is very important that there is no delay in the vaccination process. Receiving vaccines on time increases the effectiveness and protection against preventable diseases. However, if your child has missed a vaccination it may still be possible for them to receive it. The best solution is to contact your healthcare provider or find a vaccinating clinic near you as soon as possible, to discuss any vaccines your child may be missing.

It is important for you to keep a copy of your vaccination records to ensure that your immunizations are up-to-date. If you have lost your vaccination booklet, the best solution is to create a new one. To find information about your vaccination history, you can contact your family doctor or local public health unit to see if they have your immunization records on file.
