Vaccine coverage in Canadian children: HP40-156/2017E-PDF
results from the 2013 Childhood National Immunization Coverage Survey (CNIS).
“The Public Health Agency of Canada (The Agency) routinely monitors immunization coverage in Canada through the childhood National Immunization Coverage Survey (cNICS). Since 1994, the cNICS has been conducted approximately every two years to estimate national uptake for all routine childhood immunizations recommended by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI). The survey also includes questions on parental knowledge, attitudes and beliefs (KAB) to better understand the factors influencing decisions on immunization for their children. National immunization coverage estimates provide helpful information on the level of protection against disease in Canada and can identify general trends over time in uptake of and attitudes toward vaccines. The cNICS survey results are used to measure progress towards Canada’s national immunization goals (2–4) and to provide estimates of coverage to the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization"--Background, p. 1.
