We offer a variety of immunization clinics.
The Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit's immunization clinic provides free immunizations according to the Publicly Funded Immunization Schedule for Ontario, October 2015. Other vaccines are available for purchase, including TB skin tests. To receive immunizations from public health nurses at Chatham-Kent Public Health, please provide an up to date record of previous immunizations.
If you are requesting vaccines for travel purposes, please be advised that the CK Public Health immunization clinic nurses cannot give you information or advice about what you may need. We will recommend that you speak to a travel physician for specific recommendations related to your travel itinerary.
