Immunization

Age 0 to 3

During a postnatal visit, the nurse will give parents the date of the first and second vaccination appointments (at 2 months and 4 months of age). Afterward, parents need to make their baby’s appointments based on the recommended immunization schedule.

If you delivered at a birthing centre with a midwife or if you refused the postnatal visit, contact the CLSC for your area to make an appointment.

Schedule and available vaccines

Vaccines under the Québec Immunization Program are free. Children must be vaccinated at the ages of 2 months, 4 months, 12 months and 18 months. The nurse also tracks your child's development.

For more information on the vaccines given, consult the  recommended immunization schedule.

Preschool

To get ready for the start of school, kids must receive certain vaccines or booster shots (between 4 and 6 years of age). For more information about the vaccines your child needs before starting school, refer to the  recommended immunization schedule.

To have your child immunized, contact the CLSC for your area.

Vaccines are free of charge.
