National Immunization Awareness Week

April 25 – May 2 is National Immunization Awareness Week!

This week we look at how important vaccinations are for everyone.

Here are some things you can do this week:

  • Talk to your doctor, nurse, pharmacist or local public health unit about staying up-to-date with immunizations.
  • Join I Boost Immunity to help raise awareness about the value of immunization.
  • Visit the Northern Health Matters blog during the week for information on HPV, 18-month boosters, and more!

Thanks to immunization programs across Canada, vaccine-preventable diseases now cause less than 5% of all deaths across the country. Over 100 years ago, these diseases were the leading cause of death worldwide.

As more people are immunized, the disease risk for everyone is reduced.

How can you boost immunity this week?
