Help Centre what do you need help with?

Do I have to get certain vaccinations before I arrive in Canada?

No, you do not have to get certain vaccinations. The pre-departure vaccination services offered through the IFHP are voluntary.

If a panel physician associated with the International Organization for Migration does your immigration medical exam, they may offer you vaccines to update your immunization status before you arrive in Canada. If you choose to get vaccinated overseas, you should bring your vaccination record to Canada.
