Keeping students and preschoolers updated on their vaccines gives us all one less thing to worry about.

How can parents prepare for daycare and school?

1. Check if your child has unreported immunizations:

  • Ensure vaccine doses have been reported to Peterborough Public Health
  • If unsure, contact your healthcare provider for the up-to-date information

2. If immunizations are missing:

  • Visit your healthcare provider to get your child up-to-date
  • If you do not have a healthcare provider, contact the following for children and youth under 18 years of age without a healthcare provider:
    • Call the Peterborough Regional Health Centre POP Clinic (Paediatric Outpatient Program) at 705-740-8055 to book an appointment with a Nurse Practitioner.
  • For youth without a healthcare provider:
    • Call the Peterborough Virtual Care Clinic at 705-536-0882 to book an appointment.
