About Immunize Canada
Immunize Canada is a coalition of national non-governmental, professional, health, consumer, government and private sector organizations with a specific interest in promoting the understanding and use of vaccines recommended by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization.
The goal of Immunize Canada is to contribute to the control/elimination/eradication of vaccine-preventable diseases in Canada by increasing awareness of the benefits and risks of immunization for all ages via education, promotion, advocacy and media relations.
Immunize Canada (formerly the Canadian Coalition for Immunization Awareness & Promotion [CCIAP]) is the result of the merger, in January 2004, of the Canadian Immunization Awareness Program (CIAP) and the Canadian Coalition for Influenza Immunization (CCII). CCII began as Flu Alert © under the Lung Association of Canada, before expanding over the years and eventually merging with CIAP.
