Identifying Barriers to Adult Influenza Vaccination in Canada
Vaccination against influenza is critical to the health and functional ability of Canadian seniors as well as people with chronic disease, who are at higher risk of morbidity, mortality and prolonged recovery due to underlying frailty and changes in immune function.
The report is a result of an IFA-led expert meeting in June 2019 which brought together a group of Canadian experts in influenza vaccination and public health, alongside leaders of ageing and at-risk patient organizations to identify opportunities to help build capacity and influence vaccine-related policy across Canada. It is the IFA’s hope that knowledge gained through this report will help to shape future strategies to increase adult vaccination uptake rates for Canadians.
