Ontario's Publicly Funded Immunization System: Building on Today's Strengths, Innovating for the Future

Report of the Advisory Committee for Ontario's Immunization System Review

Immunization has saved more lives in Canada in the last 50 years than any other health care intervention. Ontario's Publicly Funded Immunization System: Building on Today's Strengths, Innovating for the Future outlines the findings of a comprehensive review process and proposes strategies that aim to shape the future of Ontario's immunization system and improve the health of all Ontarians for generations to come.

The Advisory Committee for Ontario's Immunization System Review was established by the Chief Medical Officer of Health to identify opportunities to improve the overall effectiveness and efficiency of Ontario's immunization system in preventing disease. The Committee met from fall 2012 to fall 2013 to complete its review. This process was supported by extensive consultation with stakeholders, a review of practices in other jurisdictions, and careful deliberations of four expert task groups that provided advice on key theme areas. The Committee has identified a series of steps that will help Ontario maintain a high performing, integrated, publicly funded immunization system that delivers and sustains optimal immunization for all Ontarians.
