Children who attend school in Ontario are required by law to be immunized against vaccine-preventable diseases or have a valid exemption. To make sure students are safe from these diseases, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is required to keep information on the immunization status of every child attending school in our city. Students who do not have up to date immunization records may be prevented from attending school.


Immunization records can be updated online at or by phone at 613-580-6744.
