Alberta Influenza Immunization Policy

Description

Influenza is a vaccine-preventable disease which leads to many hospitalizations and deaths in Alberta each year. The elderly, the very young, pregnant women and those living with chronic or immune-compromising conditions are particularly vulnerable . The goal of Alberta’s Influenza Immunization Policy (IIP) are: to ensure all Albertans have access to publicly funded influenza vaccine; to reduce the incidence and impact of influenza disease in Alberta; to have a potent and safe vaccine available for administration; and to have 100% of immunizers receive the influenza vaccine.
