Vaccination plays an important role in maintaining the health of you and your family. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, over the last 50 years, immunization has saved more lives than any other health measure. Vaccination is the best way for you and your family to avoid serious illnesses.
During your visit to the CRFHT, your doctor will discuss with you and your family the importance of vaccination and the importance of adhering to the Ontario vaccine schedule. The nurse will explain to you the reason, benefits, and possible side effects of the vaccine.
For more information about publicly-funded vaccines, please see the Ontario Ministry of Health website at the following link.
