Résumé :

"Fewer than 30% of all Canadians get the flu vaccine each year, including 62% of seniors and 50% of health care providers, falling far short of the 80% immunization target rates needed to protect the broader population. The NIA's updated report "The Underappreciated Burden of Influenza Amongst Canada's Older Population. And What We Need to Do About It," authored by Dr. Samir Sinha, Ivy Wong and Julie Dunning, shows that influenza is the 7th leading cause of death in Canada, leading to an average of 3,500 deaths and 12,200 hospitalizations each year. The good news is that provincial governments are starting to act on the recommendations made in the report. Since the report's initial release in February 2018, more provinces are making influenza vaccines available to older adults and other vulnerable populations. However, British Columbia, Quebec, and New Brunswick still do not offer universal coverage for influenza vaccination, leaving their residents unprotected to influenza infection and its potential deadly consequences.
