A Review of Clinical Effectiveness, Cost Effectiveness, and Guidelines of High Dose Influenza Vaccine for Adults
This study evaluates the clinical effectiveness, cost effectiveness and guidelines associated with high dose influenza vaccine, with a particular focus on older adults and adults who are immunocompromised.
The Impact of Repeated Vaccination Using 10-year Vaccination History on Protection Against Influenza in Older Adults
This study investigated vaccine effectiveness against laboratory-confirmed influenza and the impact of repeated vaccination over 10 previous seasons on current season vaccine effectiveness among older adults.
The Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Coverage Survey is a yearly telephone survey that collects information about the flu shot in Canada. Each flu season, the survey estimates how many people get the flu shot as well as knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about the flu shot.
This study will compare frailty at baseline, at enrollment, at 30 days post-discharge, and at 1 year between cases and controls, in order to assess the impact of hospitalization due to influenza on short- and long-term frailty and to examine differences between influenza and other reasons for hospital admission.
This pan-Canadian project aims to examine models of age-friendly communities that have a particular focus on the inclusion of diverse aging communities.
