Immunization Fact Sheets/FAQs

Exemptions and Vaccine Hesitancy

Reporting an Adverse Event Following Immunization

Health care professionals who administer vaccines and/or care for patients who may have had an Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI) are required by law to report these events to local public health authorities within seven days by completing the AEFI form.

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health’s Vaccine Preventable Disease Program provides regular immunization updates to local health care providers. We are mandated to enforce Ontario Ministry of Health’s Immunization Requirements for School Attendance and Immunization of School Pupils Act. Additional information supporting the benefits and applicability of immunization is available in the Canadian Immunization Guide and National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI).

Reporting Cold Chain Failures

Vaccines are to be kept between +2 °C and +8 °C at all times. All Health Care Providers should be familiar with the Ministry of Health’s Vaccine Storage and Handling Guidelines. Administering improperly stored vaccines can result in a poor immune response and a lack of protection for clients. If your vaccine has been exposed to temperatures below +2 °C and/or above +8 °C you should:

  1. Call Hastings Prince Edward Public Health immediately at 613-966-5500 or 1-800-267-2803, ext. 222 to report the exposure. Public Health staff will conduct an assessment of the exposed vaccine.
  2. Segregate the exposed vaccines in the refrigerator by placing these vaccines in a labelled container (or bag), marked with the date, time, and “DO NOT USE”.
  3. Check to ensure your temperature monitoring device is working correctly. If in doubt, replace the battery.
  4. After checking the temperature monitoring device and the refrigerator, record the date, time and temperature in your temperature log book. Always remember to reset your maximum-minimum thermometer (if applicable) after each recorded temperature.
  5. If the current temperature is too low or too high, move these vaccines to a properly functioning, monitored refrigerator, or place the vaccines in an insulated container with ice packs and a temperature monitoring device inside the vaccine package. Insulated containers will only keep vaccines at the appropriate temperatures for a short period of time (approximately two hours).
