You can get immunized and learn about preventing diseases with vaccines at an immunization clinic.
Immunization clinics are held at a variety of locations across Ontario, including:
- public health units
- community health centres
- health care provider offices (e.g. doctor, nurse practitioner)
Here are the services you can get across Ontario:
- immunization in the community (e.g. routinely recommended vaccines)

- flu vaccination
- vaccines for travel
- immunization services (e.g. routinely recommended vaccines) provided at health care provider offices (e.g. doctors, nurse practitioner)
