Assessment of sex-specific differences in adverse events following immunization reporting in Ontario, 2012–15

Highlights:

  • Sex differences in AEFI reporting within passive surveillance systems are not well understood.

  • We assessed sex-specific trends in passive AEFI surveillance in Ontario, Canada over four years. We observed overall predominance of female AEFI reports that varied by age, vaccine and reaction.

  • Our findings support that both biological and behavioural factors may explain these differences.

  • Further study is needed to characterize the relationship between sex, gender and AEFI reporting.

Augmentation des infections invasives à Neisseria meningitidis de sérogroupe W au Canada de 2009 à 2016

La prévalence de la méningococcie à MenW augmente au Canada et est associée à une augmentation des cas attribuables au complexe clonal ST-11 émergent, qui a maintenant été identifié dans cinq provinces canadiennes. Il semble plus courant chez les patients âgés que le complexe clonal ST-22 traditionnel, plus répandu chez les jeunes patients.
