Immunizations are your best protection against diseases. Vaccines are very safe and effective against these diseases. We will see your baby for Well Baby Checks and follow their progress closely. They will have needles according to the link below listed Immunization Schedule both Elgin and Middlesex Health Unit Information listed.

What schedule to expect for well-baby checks

  • 7-10 days after born for initial weight check and overall assessment
