Immunization Records and Requirements

Immunization is an effective way of preventing a variety of illnesses. It protects staff and children in your care and reduces the number of infectious disease outbreaks.

Under Ontario Regulation (O. Reg.) 137/15: General of the Child Care and Early Years Act, children attending licensed daycare are required to have specific immunizations

Childcare centres must collect a complete immunization history of each child, staff member and volunteer prior to admission or hire. You also need to: 

  • Ensure that copies of staff and volunteer immunization records are available to Huron Perth Public Health (HPPH) when requested 
  • Forward all immunization updates to Huron Perth Public Health

If you work or volunteer in a licensed childcare centre, you are required to get the following vaccines: 

  • Tetanus 
  • Diphtheria 
  • Pertussis 
  • Measles 
  • Mumps 
  • Rubella 

You will need to provide your immunization information to the childcare centre when you are first hired. You are responsible for keeping immunization records up-to-date and reporting them to your employer.
