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. HealthLinkBC also has multilingual information about vaccination that you can share with parents.
Contact your local public health office for more information.
