Forum on Immunizing in Schools
The proceedings of the morning plenary sessions from the “Forum on Immunizing in Schools” are archived below; permissions were obtained from the presenters for the posted presentations and accompanying audio.
The goal of this two day forum was to share successes and lessons learned from school-based immunization programs in BC, with a focus on preadolescent/ adolescent age groups.
Participants and presenters were mainly from the public health community, but also included those from education and clinical practice. The proceedings of the meeting, including afternoon breakout sessions, will inform the future work of the BC Immunization Subcommittee, which hosted this event, and implementation of the ImmunizeBC strategic framework on immunization.
