Hi, I'm completely new to this site and am not sure where to post my question... I discovered yesterday that I would need to show proof of several vaccinations. I know I've had everything that was on the go in the NS health system in the 80's, and had tetanus on an outpatient basis in 2005. I'm unable to find proof of anything. I read something about a titre test? Would that give proof either way for ALL the required vaccines to show at my medical exam? Thanks

Yes, it can. You have tell the lab which specific vax's you want to test for and they'll look for them.

and yes the titer test can show proof if you have had certain vaccines or chicken pox... they take some of your blood and test it...

Public Health for your province should have a record of them since they are required for school. A lot of Canadians have had luck with their health department. Further, if that fails, you can get a titre test done by your doctor (should be covered by provincial health care) to scan for your anti-bodies

Good luck.

:thumbs: Commonest vaccines needed are MMR, varicella and TD. For the first two, titre works quite well.

I've moved this thread from the Off-Topic forum to the Canada Regional Forum as more specific information will be available from members using this forum


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Careful. I know that the medical center in Van requires a specific tetanus shot "Adacel" and they say if its been over two years since your last tetanus they will just poke you again. Where are you interviewing? If its Van I know the medical center there lists all the required vac's. Then go to your GP and ask for the blood tests and he will get those back in about a week. From there take the results to your local health clinic and have them put them in their computer and issue you an immu record. I know I got bit in the rear on this one because I had MR as a child, but they requre specifically MMR... so I had to get repoked and then enjoyed the fake measles for a week. It was pure joy.

Anyway, figure out where you are going to be going through, get the list off their website and do it all early so you have time to get it all sorted out.
