National Immunization Awareness Week 2024 - Dr. Anne Pham-Huy

Meet Dr. Anne Pham-Huy. She’s the Chair of Immunize Canada and knows that immunization is the strongest defense against preventable diseases.

During this National Immunization Awareness Week, Dr. Anne (a pediatric infectious disease specialist) wants Canadians to know that it is more important than ever to keep their families’ immunizations up to date.

She says, ‘Delaying or missing vaccines could leave your children, family, and community vulnerable to infectious diseases. No one should be left behind when it comes to protecting the future of their health and that of their families, friends and communities. Protect your future – get immunized!’

National Immunization Awareness Week 2024 - Liz Ellwood

Liz Ellwood is committed to creating positive change. Diagnosed with cervical cancer at 24, she became an advocate for the prevention of the disease. HPV causes cervical cancer and is preventable through vaccination.

Liz hopes that sharing her cervical cancer survival story will inspire and empower Canadians to take preventative action against HPV. She advocates to not only increase awareness about the prevention of cervical cancer, but all HPV-related cancers and diseases, through vaccination.

She is a tireless advocate for women’s health and encourages Canadians to take action against HPV by getting immunized. Liz encourages everyone to get the HPV vaccine.
