Since the beginning of 2024, over 17 cases of measles have been reported across Canada. In comparison, there were only 12 cases in Canada in all of 2023.

Cases have been reported in Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and at least one confirmed case in B.C. involving a child under 10 years of age. Most cases involve people who were not immunized or not fully immunized, and who travelled to countries where measles is spreading.

With spring break approaching, you are encouraged to remind patients to check their vaccination records before travelling to ensure they are protected.

Health authorities are offering vaccine opportunities in advance of spring break, learn more about clinics or where to call for more information in your region:
