Immunization is widely recognized as one of the greatest public health achievements of the twentieth century. Vaccines prevent diseases, save lives and reduce health care costs. Immunization programs are an important foundation of Ontario’s health system.

We are internationally recognized experts in immunization and vaccine preventable disease prevention and control. To protect the health of Ontarians, we provide technical expertise and resources to guide public health practice, and conduct impactful, responsive research and evaluation.
