Alberta influenza immunization policy

Description

Influenza is a contagious and easily-transmitted respiratory disease caused by a virus that affects the nose, throat and lungs. The Alberta Influenza Immunization Policy (IIP) sets out the requirements for the provincially-funded Influenza Immunization Program. The objectives of the policy are: to reduce the incidence and impact of influenza disease in Alberta; to have effective and safe influenza vaccines available for administration; to increase the coverage rates of targeted populations; and for all people in Alberta to have access to provincially-funded influenza vaccine.
