Public Health has a new online Immunization reporting system, ICON (Immunization Connect Ontario). It uses a secure site. Please follow the steps in the box below. the ICON is located on the bottom of the Bruce Grey Child and Family Services main page.
Requesting an Immunization record from Public Health:
You may request a record for yourself or your child if they are under the age of 16. You will need a unique code called the Ontario Immunization ID (OIID) and a PIN #. If you received a letter from Public Health, the letter will contain the OIID. You will need to contact Public Health to receive the PIN number for the first time only. If you did not receive a letter from us, call us to get the Ontario Immunization ID (OIID) and a PIN number.
To access the new online system, see the steps above. Choose “REQUEST IMMUNIZATION RECORD” button.
