Measles and Vaccination: Information to share with parents

With the recent measles outbreak, it’s a good opportunity to review policies and procedures to ensure that you are meeting requirements and following public health expectations. Some things to consider:

• Do you continue to provide information to parents about immunization?
• Do you understand public health expectations for documenting children’s immunization and developing an exclusion plan?

Canada Public Health has information on the measles and a parent’s guide to immunization.

Contact your local public health office for more information.
