"For this report, we assessed coverage for all publicly-funded routine immunization programs started in infancy through adolescence, with the exception of influenza and rotavirus vaccines.

The objectives of this report are:

  • To present provincial, PHU-level and Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN)-level immunization coverage estimates for the 2017–18 school year for Ontario’s publicly-funded childhood immunization programs which include:
    • Immunization programs started in infancy and early childhood: measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, polio and pertussis for 7- and 17-year-olds; Haemophilus influenzae type b, pneumococcal conjugate, meningococcal-C-conjugate (MCC) and varicella for 7-year-olds.
    • School-based immunization programs: hepatitis B, quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate (MCV4) and human papillomavirus (HPV) for 12-year-olds.
  • To compare provincial immunization coverage estimates with nationally defined coverage goals, where relevant.
  • To describe trends in provincial immunization programs over five school years (since the implementation of Panorama and the DHIR).
  • To examine the proportion of 7- and 17-year-old students with non-medical and medical immunization exemptions for diseases designated under the ISPA:
    • By each antigen provincially for the 2013–14 through 2017–18 school years.
    • For at least one antigen provincially and by PHU for the 2017–18 school year." - Immunization Coverage Report for School Pupils in Ontario 2017–18 School Year
