PHO provides up-to-date evidence to address public health
challenges that affect Ontarians.
We also provide support to Ontario’s immunization
stakeholders so that they may better understand and raise awareness about
vaccine safety. One of our areas of expertise is vaccine safety – monitoring
and communicating about vaccine safety is essential for immunization programs
to be successful.
Our vaccine safety webpage provides a one-stop source of
information related to vaccine safety surveillance in the province of Ontario,
Recently, we were recognized as a trusted resource in the
area of vaccine safety. Our vaccine
safety webpage was featured by the World
Health Organization in their Global Vaccine Safety initiative. As part of
Vaccine Safety Net, our webpage will join a list of others that help internet
users find reliable vaccine safety information tailored to their needs.
We are thrilled that our resources will reach a global
audience, and further our goal of making our resources easily accessible to
health care providers who administer immunization.
