How do I know which kind of vaccinations that I will need?...

Question: 

How do I know which kind of vaccinations that I will need? Will the health clinic have all the vaccines?

Answer: 

The vaccines you need depends on many factors such as your age, health status, immunization history and travel plans.  

You can contact your local public health unit to find out which vaccines you need. A public health nurse can review your immunization records, tell you which vaccines are recommended for you, and let you know which vaccines are publicly funded (free) and available from the health unit and which vaccines are available for purchase from your local pharmacy or travel clinic.  

You can contact your local travel clinic for travel vaccine recommendations.
