Vaccine Uptake in Canadian Adults 2019
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. Respondents aged 18 years and older were asked if they had been vaccinated against influenza for the 2018-2019 season; reasons for vaccination or non-vaccination; knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs (KAB) regarding vaccination; and select demographic information. As part of the 2018/19 survey the participants were also questioned regarding four vaccines routinely offered to adults: pertussis, tetanus, pneumococcal (participants 65 years of age and older) and shingles (participants 50 years of age and older).
