Question: 

My child's immunizations are up-to-date. They are entering kindergarten in September. Do I need to get them 4-6 year immunization prior to entering Kindergarten ?

Answer: 

The 4 – 6 year (school entry) immunizations can be given anytime between 4 and 6 years of age (i.e., at the time of school entry).  However, in general it is recommended that children receive immunizations as soon as possible once eligible.  Many public health units in BC hold kindergarten immunization clinics prior to school starting. We recommend that you contact your local public health unit to find out when clinics are offered in your area.
