The Perth District Health Unit maintains immunization records for every student who attends day care and school in the area.
It is up to you to keep the yellow immunization card for your children updated. Always bring it with you when your child receives an immunization and use it to keep track of all future immunizations.
Reporting Childhood Immunizations to the Health Unit – It is Up to You!
Currently your doctor’s office does not report all immunizations to the Health Unit. It is the parent or legal guardian’s responsibility to update the Health Unit when your child receives an immunization so that we can update their record.
To report an immunization, you will need to provide the following:
- Child’s full name, address, and date of birth
- Parent or legal guardian’s name
- Date the child was immunized
- Vaccine the child received
