Immunization Records and Reporting

Submit and view your immunization record online.

Every time you or your child gets a vaccine, report it using the Ontario Ministry of Health’s online immunization record reporting tool called Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON).


The Middlesex-London Health Unit is part of the provincial electronic database that holds immunization records for every student who attends licensed child care centres, elementary, and secondary school in Ontario.

This tool ensures:
  • A complete record of your immunizations, and
  • Immunizations are submitted to your local Public Health unit.
Important notes:
  • Your healthcare provider does not report vaccines they have administered.
  • It is the responsibility of parents and legal guardians to report immunization doses via ICON (or by other methods described on this page)
  • The ICON system is not connected to primary healthcare provider offices.
  • Only vaccines reported to a public health unit in Ontario will be included in ICON.
  • ICON does not include records of TB skin tests.
  • ICON does not include records of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • To receive a copy of your Ontario COVID-19 vaccine receipt, please visit
  • If you are a current resident of Ontario and received a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada, learn how to report this information to the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

Immunization Requirements for Child Care, Elementary and Secondary Schools

Ontario Immunization Schedule

Every year, public health nurses look at immunization records for students in licensed child care centres, elementary and secondary schools. This is done to make sure student records are complete according to the Ontario Immunization Schedule and current legislation. If your child's record is not up to date, you may receive a letter asking for the information.

The Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014, and  Immunization of School Pupils Act, R.S.O., 1990 are laws that allow the Health Unit to ask for and record immunization information for all students. If the information is not received by a certain date, suspensions from child care or school may occur, according to these laws. Your cooperation in getting the requested information to the health unit within a timely manner is greatly appreciated, in order to avoid this. Please note that healthcare provider offices do not automatically send vaccine records to the Health Unit when children are immunized. It is up to parents to report vaccines to the Health Unit when they are given.

Child Care

  • If your child is in child care, the Health Unit and the child care centre are both required to keep the information on file.
  • Please send a copy of the record to each.

School Age Students

  • If your child is in school, do not bring immunization information to the school, as they are not required to keep the information on file.
  • The Health Unit is the only place where immunization records are kept for students in Ontario.
  • If your child's records are outside of the province, it may take some time to obtain them.
  • It is up to parents to request these records.
