Question: 

What is the reason for kindergarten boosters done having an age range from 4-6 and not just a specific age like all the previous vaccines done?

Answer: 

The 4 – 6 year (school entry) immunizations can be given anytime between 4 and 6 years of age.  In general, we recommend that children receive immunizations as soon as possible once eligible in order to be protected sooner.  Typically, many public health units in BC have held kindergarten immunization clinics prior to school starting however services vary. Please contact your local health unit  for information on immunization services during COVID-19 in your area.
