We are moving to BC.  What immunizations are required to enter Canada/BC? 


Proof of immunization is not required for entry into Canada. However it is highly recommended that children and adults are up to-date with the recommended immunizations to protect themselves against the serious diseases vaccines prevent. 

We recommend that you visit your local public health unit when you arrive in BC.  A public health nurse will be able to review your immunization records and recommended and provide any missing immunizations.

You can find a list of vaccines recommended for children and adults in BC here:  http://immunizebc.ca/vaccine-schedules
