Public Health Ontario has produced the Annual Report on Vaccine Safety since 2013 to facilitate ongoing assessment of adverse events following immunization (AEFIs) and to support communication about vaccine safety in Ontario.

In 2016, an evaluation was conducted to assess whether this report and related resources helped public health professionals improve their knowledge and communication about vaccine safety.

This session will provide an overview of the 2015 vaccine safety report, the recent evaluation findings and new initiatives to enhance provincial vaccine safety surveillance knowledge products.

The Annual Report on Vaccine Safety can be found here:
