Where can I find my immunization records? 

There is no central registry of all immunizations provided in B.C.  A paper record would have been given at the time of immunization. If you no longer have a copy of your immunization records, and you require proof of immunization or immunity to vaccine-preventable diseases you can:

  1. Contact your local public health unit if you were immunized at the health unit and request a copy of your immunization records.  If you were immunized in school, your local public health unit should have these records. 
  2. Contact your family doctor if he/she provided your immunizations and request a copy of your immunization records. 

If you cannot locate your immunization records, you can follow up with your family doctor to have your blood tested to determine your immunity to some diseases.  If the blood test reports no immunity to a vaccine preventable disease, please follow-up with your local public health unit to have them recommend and provide any publicly funded immunizations.  It may be necessary to repeat some immunizations to ensure you are fully protected.
