An immunization record, or your “yellow card,” keeps track of all immunizations (vaccinations) that you or your child has received.
It is important to make sure that this record is kept up-to-date and stored in a safe place with your other important documents. Personal immunization records may be required for school, work or travel. An up-to-date immunization record will prevent unnecessary delays and/or duplicate vaccines being given.
When an immunization is given by a Health Unit nurse at one of our Immunization Clinics or at a School Immunization Clinic, the record is automatically updated. However, immunizations given by other health care providers are not automatically sent to the TBDHU.
We recommend that you submit immunization dates or records to the TBDHU once they are given by another health care provider to ensure the record is always up-to-date. This is especially important for children. There are several options to make it easy and convenient.
