Vaccines can prevent the outbreak of certain diseases.
Through the use of safe and effective vaccines, the Public Health team helps to protect you and your community from vaccine preventable diseases.
Immunization is one of the most successful and cost-effective measures in helping to protect you against potentially life threatening disease. In order to ensure, our communities remain healthy it is critical that individuals stay up to date with their vaccines. In New Brunswick, immunizations are provided by primary care providers such as family doctors, nurse practitioners and Public Health.
Public Health focuses on immunization for:
- youth up to 18 years of age
Immunization is also provided for specific groups who may be at higher risk for a vaccine-preventable disease during an outbreak.
Routine Immunization Schedule
There are many vaccines available which can prevent outbreaks of certain diseases. A schedule is available so you know what vaccinations are appropriate for your children and at what ages. Most infant's first immunization happens at 2 months. Once your child is 3 years old, you can visit your local public health unit and get a review of immunizations to make sure everything is up to date.
Recommended vaccinations are outlined in the New Brunswick Immunization Schedule.
