Speaker: Sandani Hapuhennedige
In Canada, only the province of Quebec has a vaccine-injury compensation program. This CANVax webinar will provide participants with an overview of the dialogue on vaccine-injury compensation (VIC), the rationale for these policies, and how they function. The speaker will further describe the context and current status of VIC policies/programs in Canada, based on specific recent events, reviews of the literature, and other related conversations via social media and advocacy groups. The session will conclude with a conversation on gaps in knowledge and important next steps for Canada’s immunization strategies and planning.
