I'm a non- vaccinating mom in Canada who is wondering if anyone has info on which vaccines are used in Canada, and if any of them are a live virus? It seems to me that some are, but I cannot remember which ones? I'm not sure where to get this info and any help would be greatly appreciated.

<p>Live virus vaccines include rotavirus, MMR, chickenpox, and FluMist. Also, shingles (high dose chickenpox), which is given to people over 65 years.</p>

<p>I'm sure Canada gives MMR and FluMist. I'm not sure about rotavirus, chickenpox, or shingles.</p>

<p>Here is the U.S. schedule. If the same vaccines are given in Canada, they are probably given at about the same ages.</p>
