Parents can help ensure immunizations for their children are up to date by viewing their own past records to provide to public health officials. As well as public health clinics, parents are able to get their children immunized through their primary care providers or community pharmacists.The government shares, mandatory reporting is part of the ongoing plan to increase immunization rates for all vaccine-preventable diseases. This effort commenced with the measles immunization catch-up program in April 2019. The most recent data indicates that increasing the opportunities for guardians to get children immunized is improving immunization levels overall.“This spring, we launched the catch-up measles immunization program throughout schools and public health units, which is having a positive effect,” said Dix. “Since April, the number of kindergarten-to-Grade 12 students having received two doses of measles vaccine has increased by over 33,000. Based on the records reviewed so far by health authorities – amounting to over 566,000 – nearly 95% of students have received one or two doses of vaccine.”B.C. has a comprehensive provincial childhood immunization program, which includes coverage for a wide variety of diseases including measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, pertussis, polio, HPV, varicella, diphtheria, influenza, meningococcal disease and hepatitis.For more information on immunizations;Advertisement To check on immunization status, or to find a public health unit anywhere in the province, visit; CLICK HERE Learn more about measles and the vaccines online; CLICK HERE To learn more about B.C.’s provincial childhood immunization program, visit; CLICK HERE Visit BC Centre for Disease Control’s website for the latest measles updates in B.C.; CLICK HERE “Through this additional measure, we can be confident that health officials will be able to provide better protection to our students by preventing outbreaks,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Education. “Improving the rates of immunization of children and youth is critically important for student safety and healthy schools across B.C.”Public health officials will review school enrolment records in late August and into October 2019 to match them against immunization records for kindergarten-to-Grade 12 students that currently exist in the provincial immunization registry.For the first year of the reporting requirement, the goal will be to help parents get their children up to date on immunizations by the end of the school year.Mandatory reporting of student’s immunization status increases public health’s ability to respond during an outbreak, as it allows health officials to quickly identify those who are under-and unimmunized.Advertisement VANCOUVER, B.C. – Students enrolled in the provincial school system will be expected to provide immunization records.The Vaccination Status Reporting Regulation is the new mandatory reporting requirement in place by the Province.“In the wake of the global measles outbreaks this spring, B.C. is implementing several measures to protect children and families from this and other communicable diseases through improved immunization,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health.- Advertisement -“Starting this school year, parents and guardians will be expected to provide the immunization status of their children to their local public health unit,” said Dix. “This mandatory reporting of the immunization status of students will ensure the public health system is prepared in the event of an outbreak. Furthermore, with the up-to-date records, public health can reach out to families with children behind on their immunizations and provide an opportunity to catch them up, as well as discuss any concerns with parents.”According to the government, most parents are already in compliance with this requirement, which means nothing further will be required when their children/ students start the new school year.For parents or guardians of children with an incomplete or missing record will be contacted by public health as to how to provide their child’s immunization information if needed and receive information on upcoming school-based or community health clinics where their child can receive immunizations if they require them.Advertisement
