Canada needs a vaccine database so doctors can check if you’re a health risk during outbreaks


Editor: This is one more directive from UN/WHO. All countries are “states” of the UN making the UN the unelected Global Government. Our elected officials, the massive bureaucracy and the media do the bidding of the UN. Time we all woke up to reality and said NO!

Canada needs a vaccine database so doctors can check if you’re a health risk during outbreaks: study

A children's doctor injects a vaccine against measles, rubella, mumps and chicken pox to an infant on February 26, 2015 in Berlin, Germany.

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — As Quebec health officials deal with a measles outbreak affecting 119 people, a new study says Canada needs a national database to help prevent and deal with future incidents.

“A key step forward is to track immunization status from birth,” said Colin Busby, co-author of “A Shot in the Arm: How to Improve Vaccination Policy in Canada.”

The research paper released Thursday by the C.D. Howe Institute was funded by the economic think-tank and reviewed by immunization researchers, Busby said in an interview.

It finds that coverage across the country ranges from 70 to 95 per cent of children, depending on the vaccine.

Vaccination rates of about 95 per cent or more are generally considered ideal for a population to develop so-called protective “herd immunity.”

Only Newfoundland and Labrador topped 95 per cent for all shots studied, including measles, mumps, chicken pox, diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough.

“Importantly, at least by their own estimates, almost all provinces appear to be below national targets for coverage,” the study says.

New Brunswick had 69 per cent coverage for measles, mumps and rubella, just ahead of Nova Scotia at 66 per cent — the lowest rates among provinces.

Saskatchewan and P.E.I. had 79 per cent coverage and Quebec just under 84 per cent.
