Skills related to immunization contribute to improving vaccine coverage, which maintains the highest possible level of group protection against diseases that can be prevented by immunization.
The New Brunswick Immunization Program Guide:
- Provides direction to all health care practitioners who provide publicly funded vaccines;
- Outlines legislation, policies and standards necessary in the provision of safe, effective and competent immunization practice;
- Gives direction to vaccinators with respect to provincial practices;
- Is intended to be used in conjunction with the Canadian Immunization Guide.
The New Brunswick Immunization Program Guide is updated periodically to reflect changes in evidence and resources.
