New Ontario Government Puts Immunization Reporting Requirements On Hold

On June 20, 2018 Premier-Designate Doug Ford notified OMA that implementation of changes to the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) and regulations have been paused. The new reporting requirements would have required family physicians to report immunizations provided to children for nine designated diseases to local public health units starting July 1, 2018.

Many providers had expressed concern about how these new reporting requirements would be implemented, and these concerns were shared with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) by several organizations.

Once a new minister responsible for health has been appointed on June 29, 2018, they will be tasked to work with the OMA to “prioritize an acceptable solution”.
