Many infectious diseases can be prevented or controlled by immunization (immunizing means “making immune to”). According to specialists, vaccinations remain the most effective public health measure and its safe use makes it one of the best preventive measures.

The Quebec regular immunization schedule includes vaccines offered free of charge under the Quebec immunization program. Other vaccines may be recommended due to health status, lifestyle, work, activities or travel.

For any questions regarding vaccinations, contact Info-Santé by calling 8-1-1, the closest CLSC or your doctor.
