To protect your child and your family

When you have your baby vaccinated, you are protecting them against certain serious diseases. Vaccination stimulates your baby’s defence system to produce antibodies.

It is important to follow the vaccination schedule recommended by public health professionals. The first vaccine must be given at the age of 2 months to protect your baby right away. Vaccinations are also recommended before your child enters kindergarten.

The vaccine schedule includes a free longer appointment (about an hour) to assess child development using the ABCdaire 18 months+ tool. To learn more, visit the Agir tôt information page on the Québec government website.

CLSC nurses regularly offer vaccination clinics for children.

At your appointment

  • Remember to bring your child’s immunization record or proof of the vaccines they’ve already had.
  • Arrive 15 minutes early to register. Bring your child’s health insurance card if you have it.
  • Make sure that at least one parent is with the child to give authorization to vaccinate.

If neither parent can be present

  • Download, print, and complete the letter of consent for vaccination by proxy
  • Read about the benefits and risks of immunization on the Québec Immunization Program website, Immunization schedule section.
  • Give the consent letter to the person who will be with your child on the day of the vaccination
  • Make sure they also have your child’s immunization record or proof of vaccines already received
  • Ask them to arrive 15 minutes early to register
  • Make sure that the vaccination nurse or the person who is with your child can reach you by phone if necessary
