Health and Immunization


Edmonton Public Schools works with many service providers to deliver health services and programs to schools. Alberta Health Services provides information and assistance to families and schools on health-related issues for students.  For health advice and information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, call Health Link Alberta by dialing 811 or visit My Health Alberta.


Contagious diseases spread more easily when children are together at school, but many can be prevented through immunization. Children get the best protection when immunizations are given on time. The preschool booster is due when a child is between four and six years of age, but preferably before starting Kindergarten.

If you need a copy of your child’s immunization record, please contact Health Link Alberta at 811 or your nearest health centre.
