National Immunization Awareness Week (NIAW) is held annually in late April. It’s an opportunity to focus the attention of Canadians on the importance of vaccinations for all ages. In Canada, immunizations have saved more lives than any other health intervention at this time. The vaccines which are used in Canada are developed with high standards and are continuously monitored on safety and effectiveness. Individuals may react differently to various immunizations; risks and benefits should both be considered through discussion with a health care provider.
