//Policy on Vaccination & Immunization

The Board of the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia (CCBC) passed a motion on May 3, 2015 to approve a policy on vaccination and immunization.

The prevention and treatment of infectious disease is not within the scope of chiropractic practice. Accordingly, British Columbia chiropractors must not provide any professional advice or counseling to patients in relation to vaccination issues. Patients with vaccination questions should be advised to contact their local public health officials.

As a result of the adoption of this policy, registrants may not:

  • Counsel patients with respect to immunization and vaccination
  • Conduct seminars as a chiropractor about immunization and vaccination
  • Supply immunization information (electronic, paper or verbal) in your clinic or any other venue where you are acting as a chiropractor
  • Provide immunization information on your public website
