Immunizations (vaccines) help protect individuals against serious diseases and are very safe. Public Health Nurses immunize youth in clinics and schools.
This program coordinates the delivery of immunizations throughout the life span based on Manitoba Health’s Routine Immunization Schedule.
Call your local Public Health Office to inquire regarding your immunization needs.
