Hi,
Could you please tell the vaccination requirements for first time landing in Canada?

Hello Shiladitya,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some information on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website in the After you arrive: Health care - Vaccinations for adults and children section.

Here is an excerpt,

Vaccinations for adults and children

Vaccinations (also called immunizations) are one of the best ways to protect yourself and your children from getting serious diseases. You should ask a doctor what vaccinations you and your children need.

Before your children start school, you can arrange to have them vaccinated against certain diseases through your doctor or a public health clinic. You will receive a vaccination record, which you may have to provide to your child’s school. If you and your children were not fully vaccinated against preventable diseases before coming to Canada, you should contact a doctor or local public health clinic to schedule an appointment to be vaccinated.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
