Elgin St. Thomas Public Health
National Immunization Awareness Week 2017

Immunization is one of the most important advances in public health. Experts believe it has saved the lives of more Canadians over the past 50 years than any other health intervention.

Before vaccines became available, many Canadian children died from diseases like diphtheria, measles, and polio. These diseases can now be prevented by immunization.

Immunization protects individuals who receive vaccines. It also helps to prevent the spread of infection in the community which ultimately protects:

  • infants who are too young to be vaccinated,
  • people who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons (e.g. some people with weakened immune systems cannot receive some vaccines),
  • people who may not get full protection from immunization (e.g. the elderly).

Elgin St. Thomas Public Health is celebrating National Immunziation Awareness Week from April 24 to April 28. Our schedule of events is as follows:
