PHO Grand Rounds: Immunization coverage for the 2017-18 school year in Ontario

This presentation highlights key findings from Public Health Ontario’s recently released Immunization Coverage Report for School Pupils in Ontario: 2017-18 School Year, including immunization coverage estimates by public health unit (PHU) for Ontario’s school-aged population for the 2017-18 school year. Recent trends in provincial immunization coverage are described and compared to national coverage goals. We will also discuss the proportion of 7- and 17-year-old students with non-medical and medical immunization exemptions for diseases designated under the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA).

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize immunization coverage estimates and proportions of students with exemptions for publicly funded programs in Ontario for the 2017-18 school year.
  • Compare trends in provincial immunization coverage since the implementation of Panorama with nationally defined coverage goals.
  • Examine variability in immunization coverage in Ontario across vaccine programs and geographic regions.
  • Discuss the strengths, challenges and potential opportunities for immunization coverage assessment in Ontario.
