Question: 

Why do schools no longer require students entering kindergarten to have their immunizations? Why are immunizations not mandatory in BC?

Answer: 

Immunization is not mandatory in BC.  However, it is strongly recommended that children are up-to-date with their immunizations prior to entering a childcare facility or school. If you have other questions or concerns, please contact your local community health centre and ask to speak to a public health nurse. You will find the number here.
