Hello! We have just arrived to Vancouver and followed the schedule of another country. How can I match it with the local schedule? Thank you

Answer: 

You can take your immunization records to your local public health unit to be checked.  A public health nurse can review your records and recommend and provide any missing routine vaccines. It is important to have your records checked as vaccine schedules and recommendations differ between countries. You can find the contact information for public health units in BC here

You can find BC's routine immunization schedules here and a list of vaccines recommended for adults in BC here
