NIAW 2017: Impactful Applied Research to Push Forward Immunization Practices
25 April 2017
The better we understand how vaccines work and how they are being used, the better we can take impactful action to protect Ontarians. PHO experts are leading contributors to the body of evidence on immunization to help shape policy and practice provincially, nationally and internationally.
Applied immunization research and evaluation is a cross-cutting Public Health Ontario scientific initiative to guide immunization programs, maximizing the synergies of inter-disciplinary research, in order to deliver innovative, policy-relevant, responsive and impactful evidence that leads to improved health for all Ontarians.
Check out some of these recent immunization publications from PHO:
- Assessment of sex-specific differences in adverse events following immunization reporting in Ontario, 2012-15.
- Systematic review of the cost-effectiveness of influenza immunization programs.
