About vaccines

Vaccinations don’t stop at childhood.

If you are travelling abroad or interested in helping to protect you and your family against vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccinations are one of the things that can help you stay healthy - but do you know which vaccinations may be relevant to you?

Our aim is to increase awareness about vaccinations that you may want to consider at different stages of life. Your healthcare provider can offer you advice and guidance to help you make your decision. Like regular exercise and a healthy diet, vaccines are an important tool to consider when thinking about overall health and wellness. So, be sure to take the time to learn about which vaccines may be right for you at what age.

For Canadian residents, our online assistant immi can create a vaccination tracker for you to be able to use to have a conversation with your healthcare professional.
