Canadian Immunization Guide
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is pleased to launch the newly revised Canadian Immunization Guide. Prepared by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and published by PHAC, this 7th edition of the Guide has been extensively updated and includes more information on such topics as vaccine safety, effective communication, and immunization of adults and health care workers.
Three new chapters have been added as well: principles of combination vaccines; principles of vaccine interchangeability; and immunization of persons new to Canada. The revamped and updated Guide is the single most comprehensive source of information on immunization in Canada. This is a reference tool for health care providers, but all Canadians have a responsibility to ensure their immunizations are up-to-date. The Guide can be downloaded from PHAC's website at: www.naci.gc.ca.
