Reporting Immunizations

By law, it is the parent’s responsibility to report all vaccines to Lambton Public Health.

Immunize Connect Ontario

Use ICON (Immunization Connect Ontario) to:

  1. View or print an immunization record for your child (includes any vaccines that have been reported to public health)
  2. Report immunizations to Lambton Public Health. Upload a picture of your record to ensure accurate records.

In order to access ICON, you’ll need your child’s Ontario Health Card. The site will prompt you to create a PIN. If you need assistance, contact us by email at immunization@county-lambton.on.ca or call 519-383-8331 ext. 3589.


ICON should NOT be used to record your COVID-19 vaccination. All COVID-19 vaccines are recorded on COVaxON and a copy of your record can be accessed on the Ontario Health website.

FAQ

Do you need a copy of an immunization record?

If you have uploaded records of vaccination on ICON you can access digital copies of these records at any time on this portal. You will need your personal health information (e.g. Health Card) to access these records.

If you have previously reported vaccinations to Lambton Public Health or Lambton Public Health has administered vaccinations these will also be included on ICON. If you are having difficulty accessing your records contact Lambton Public Health at immunization@county-lambton.on.ca or 519-383-8331 for a copy of your child’s immunization record.

Exemptions

Children can be exempted for medical reasons, conscience or religious beliefs. Learn more about the exemption process.

However, a pupil who is not vaccinated may be excluded from a school due to an outbreak or an immediate risk of an outbreak of a designated disease.

What do I need to do if my child receives a school suspension letter?

A school suspension letter has been sent because the immunization status and records for the student are not on file. Students will be removed from the suspension list once their immunization information is reported to Lambton Public Health and the records are verified as being up-to-date. Lambton Public Health will provide the school with an updated school suspension list prior to the start of each school year.

To avoid having your child suspended from school, please ensure to do one of the following:

Report Immunization(s) – If the student has received the immunization or an exemption was processed, please update our records by reporting the information to Lambton Public Health.
1. Immunizations received
2. Exemptions processed

Receive Immunization(s) – If the student is overdue for an immunization please plan to receive the immunization or process an exemption, and report them to Lambton Public Health.
1. Contact your health-care provider to book an appointment
2. If you don’t have a health-care provider, call Lambton Public Health to inquire about the availability of vaccines 519-383-8331 ext. 3589
