Vancouver Coastal Health is encouraging parents to make sure kids entering kindergarten in September have up to date vaccinations.
The VCH campaign highlights children who can’t be vaccinated for health reasons, and the need to protect them through the “herd immunity” effect.
Dr Paul Martiquet is the Medical Health Officer for the Sunshine Coast.
Dr. Paul Hasselback of Island Health says the main concern they see is that while most parents start with vaccinations, some don’t follow up.
Hasselback says they’re not doing any special awareness campaign along the lines of VCH and some other Health Authorities.
