Provinces and territories across Canada are failing to vaccinate older people against common illnesses like the flu, shingles and pneumonia.
They’re about to get a serious wakeup call.
The second edition of last year’s groundbreaking report card on how well governments across Canada vaccinate older adults is set to launch in January 2022.
The first edition, launched in early 2021, identified major gaps in how vaccinations are funded and given to older populations, as well as how effectively important information is communicated to the public about how, where, and when to get vaccinated against common preventable diseases. Each province and territory was assigned an unbiased grade on their performance and, unfortunately, the findings were grim.
This year, we’re taking a close look at what, if any, improvements have been made across Canada to the problems we identified in our first report. You’ll see at a glance where each provincial/territorial government looked at the data, listened to the recommendations and took real steps to protect the lives of older adults in their jurisdictions.
And, just as importantly, you’ll see those who didn’t.
