Immunization Clinics & Records

*Immunization Clinics are by appointment only

Many diseases can be prevented with vaccination. Immunization helps protect your health and prevents disease transmission between you and your family, patients, clients or residents. This is important, because as a health care worker, you may be more at risk of exposure to communicable diseases in the workplace. PHSA provides free workplace-related vaccines for staff at immunization clinics.

New employees

Report your vaccine and immunity status to the Provincial Workplace Health Call Centre online at https://healthandsafety.healthcarebc.ca/ within two weeks of hire.

If you need support, call 1-866-922-9464 to speak with

an Occupational Health Nurse.

  • The vaccination records you submit will be assessed by an Occupational Health Nurse, who will make immunization recommendations as needed, based on your PHSA job role.
  • Workplace Health strongly encourages employees to take advantage of this benefit to avoid the spread of communicable diseases, but the decision whether to receive recommended immunizations is up to each employee.
