Protect your child and your family

When you vaccinate your child, you help to protect them from some serious diseases. Vaccination activates your baby’s immune system to make antibodies.

It is important to follow the vaccination schedule recommended by the professionals in Québec's public health system. The first vaccine should be given as early as two months of age to protect your baby right from the start. Vaccinating your child before they begin kindergarten is also advised.

A nurse from Jeffery Hale Community Services can vaccinate your baby or toddler by appointment.

To get ready for an appointment

  • Bring your child's vaccination record booklet or other proof of vaccinations received.
  • Arrive 15 minutes ahead of time to register.
  • Make sure one of the parents is present to give their consent to vaccinate the child.

If neither parent can be present

  • Download, print and complete the "Proxy Vaccination Consent Letter".
  • Visit the Quebec Immunization Program website to learn all about the benefits and risks of immunization, under the Immunization Schedule section.
  • Give these two documents to the person who will bring your child for their vaccination:
  • The Proxy Vaccination Consent Letter that you have completed and signed;
  • Your baby’s vaccination card or other proof of vaccinations received.
  • Ask the person bringing your child to arrive 15 minutes ahead of time to register.
  • Make sure the nurse who is giving the vaccine, or the person bringing your child, can reach you by phone if required.
