Immunization

Immunization is critically important in the battle to control and eliminate infectious diseases. One hundred years ago, infectious diseases were the leading cause of death worldwide. In Canada, they now cause less than 5% of all deaths thanks to immunization programs undertaken from coast to coast.

Immunization is necessary for two reasons: to protect the individual and to protect communities. Vaccines protect an entire population by preventing the spread of disease from one individual to another: the more people immunized, the less chance for disease to circulate.

Immunization has saved more lives in Canada in the last 50 years than any other health intervention.

Immunization is the single most cost-effective health investment, making immunization a cornerstone of efforts to promote health.

Having your child immunized is one of the most important decisions you will make about your child' s health care. Health Canada believes that scheduled immunization will provide basic protection for most children against certain common diseases, and that immunization also serves to protect the public's health.
