‘ICON’IC CHANGE

– New Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON) Tool Makes it Easier to Track Vaccination Records –

This is a case where a bit of screen time on your cell, tablet or desktop computer could be good for your health.

The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit is promoting a new web-based program that makes it easier for families to track and manage their children’s immunization records. The Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON) tool has just launched in Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes as part of a provincial rollout of the new system.

“No more need for paper immunization records, as ICON is a secure, online tool that parents and guardians can access anytime,” says Marianne Rock, Manager of Communicable Disease Control, Epidemiology and Evaluation with the HKPR District Health Unit. “ICON allows parents and guardians to view, print or update their children’s immunization records. The system also provides notification when a child requires new vaccines.”

According to Rock, ICON will be very helpful for families with children, who typically require certain vaccines to attend daycares and schools. As well, ICON allows parents and guardians to more easily update new vaccines their children receive to keep immunization records up-to-date.

Before accessing the system, ICON requires an Ontario Immunization ID and PIN number. To get this information, local residents can call the Health Unit at 1-866-888-4577, ext. 1507.
