Cette stratégie repose sur plusieurs principes directeurs en matière de communications, à savoir privilégier en toute circonstance la santé des Canadiens, fournir de l'information de qualité rapidement, communiquer de façon coordonnée au niveau de l’ensemble des ordres de gouvernement, protéger la confidentialité et, enfin, surveiller la perception du risque de la population et s’y adapter. L'annexe décrit une approche de communication sur les risques, propose des déclencheurs d’intervention pour des pandémies ayant des répercussions variables et inclut un protocole de communication qui sera mis en œuvre à travers le pays, dans l’éventualité d'une pandémie.
The 2016 mid-term review of the Global Measles-Rubella Strategic Plan 2012–20 for achieving measles-rubella elimination concluded that the full potential of strategies and activities to strengthen routine immunization (RI) service delivery had not been met. In December 2017, researchers contacted the World Health Organization (WHO) and partner agency immunization staff in all six WHO Regions who identified 23 countries working on measles or rubella elimination that have implemented examples of recommended activities to improve RI, adapted to their needs.
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends immunization with Tdap vaccine for all pregnant women, during each pregnancy, irrespective of previousTdap immunization history and interval between pregnancies.
The SAGE Working Group on Vaccine Hesitancy developed a vaccine hesitancy measure, the Vaccine Hesitancy Scale (VHS). This scale has the potential to aid in the advancement of research and immunization policy but has not yet been psychometrically evaluated.
Under-reporting of pertussis in Ontario: A Canadian Immunization Research Network (CIRN) study using capture-recapture
Understanding the epidemiology of pertussis requires timely, reliable, and accurate surveillance data, but under-diagnosis and under-reporting of pertussis cases are longstanding challenges, compromising the ability to accurately estimate the burden of disease. Researchers aimed to estimate the true number of pertussis cases in Ontario separately in infants and those aged one year and over, and evaluate the completeness of each data source through a three-source capture-recapture data analysis.
Invasive meningococcal disease (IMD) is serious, often resulting in fulminant sepsis or meningitis. IMD in Canada is primarily attributable to serogroups B and C. There are routine programs for serogroup C vaccine at 12 months of age, with some jurisdictions routinely providing additional earlier doses. Adolescents routinely receive a booster dose of serogroup C vaccine or of a quadrivalent (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine. Serogroup B vaccines are not recommended for routine use pending further data on the efficacy and duration of protection from the available vaccine. However, children at increased risk for IMD should start immunization for serogroups B and C as soon as possible, assuming that they are at least 2 months of age.

Based on evidence reviewed and summarized in this advisory committee statement, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization makes recommendations on the use of previously recommended LZV and newly authorized RZV vaccine in populations and individuals.
Use of a new global indicator for vaccine safety surveillance and trends in adverse events following immunization reporting 2000–2015
Reporting of adverse events following immunization (AEFI) is a key component for functional vaccine safety monitoring system. The aim of this study is to document trends in the AEFI reporting ratio globally and across the six World Health Organization (WHO) regions.
