Question: 

Hi, we are planning to travel to South America when our new born will be around 3mths. Where can I find info and program for his vaccination

Answer: 

You can find information on infant and childhood vaccines here, and you can find B.C.'s routine vaccine schedule for infants and children here. It is important to ensure that you and your family are up to date on all routine vaccines before travelling.

Additional travel vaccines may be recommended for your destination. It is recommended that you consult your health care provider or visit a travel health clinic - preferably at least 6 weeks before you travel - for recommendations for you and your family. When travelling internationally, you and your family may be at risk for a number of diseases that are rarely found in Canada but are common in other parts of the world. Travel vaccines provide important protection. You can read more about travel vaccines here.
