Canadian Immunization Guide

Welcome to the homepage for the Canadian Immunization Guide (the Guide).

The Guide is a comprehensive resource on immunization for health professionals, vaccine program decision-makers and other Canadian stakeholders with an interest in immunization. It has been developed based on recommendations and statements of the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and the Committee to Advise on Tropical Medicine and Travel (CATMAT) that advises on travel-related health hazards, including vaccine preventable diseases.

The Guide consists of 54 chapters organized into five parts. Chapters will be updated as new evidence becomes available and NACI and CATMAT statements are completed. Please consult these pages regularly for the latest updates or subscribe for automated updates when changes are made.

If you have any comments or questions regarding the Canadian Immunization Guide, please Contact us. Note however, that the Agency does not provide medical advice regarding individuals/cases.
