Immunizations (or vaccinations) are safe and the most effective way to prevent many serious diseases and illnesses.  There’s no time like the present to catch up with routine immunizations. 

RCDHU Immunization Clinics

  • Routine Immunization Clinics: Offered throughout Renfrew County and District for people who live, work, and attend school in Ontario. To book an appointment, please call the Immunization Line at 613-732-9436 or 1-833-773-0004. For a list of Routine Immunization Clinic dates and times, please visit the RCDHU Calendar.

As required by the Immunization of School Pupils Act, 1990 and the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 families need to submit student immunization records to their local public health unit.

Note: Health Care providers are NOT obligated to share immunization records with the health unit. Please ensure you receive an updated record of every immunization your child receives. Records must be submitted to RCDHU.

Update and Submit Immunization Records Online:

You can submit and update your immunization records online using the Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON) tool. 

ICON is a secure online system for submitting, updating, viewing, and printing your or your child’s immunization information to RCDHU.

How to use ICON:

You will need to create an account and set a PIN for you or your child. To create an account and set a PIN, you will need the following information:

  • Ontario Health Card AND Postal Code (these must be on file with RCDHU)


  • Ontario Immunization ID (OIID): To obtain the OIID and get assistance setting your PIN, call Renfrew County and District Health Unit at 613-732-9436 or 1-833-773-0004

Important: When submitting records on ICON, please upload a picture of the record so we can verify that the correct vaccine is entered.

Other ways to update your record:

If you choose to share immunization records through email, fax, mail, or in person, the following form must be completed – Immunization Program Questionnaire and attached to a copy of the immunization records submitted.

To submit immunization records, you can:

  • Email a digital copy of the Immunization record to
  • Fax a copy of the immunization record to 613-735-3067, ATTN to: Clinical Services – Immunization Records
  • Mail a copy of the immunization record to: Renfrew County and District Health Unit, 141 Lake St. Pembroke, ON. K8A 5L8

Please note that mailing can take more time and delay the reviewing and updating of the file in the provincial database system.

In the first few years of life, your child is most at risk of contracting a serious disease that can be prevented through vaccines. These diseases can cause very serious illness and even death. Vaccines make your child’s immunity stronger.

Why should you get vaccinated?

When you get vaccines, you protect yourself and everyone around you. This includes our most vulnerable people, like very young children, the elderly or those who have weak immune systems. Regardless of how healthy you are, you could get very sick without vaccines to help protect you. The protection offered by some vaccines only last for a certain amount of time, so it is important to receive booster doses in adulthood to keep yourself and those around you safe. For more information about staying up to date as an adult, visit An Adult’s Guide to Vaccination.

As an adult you should receive the following publicly funded (free) vaccines:
