"Recent outbreaks of infectious disease are a troubling reminder of insufficient vaccination coverage in many communities across Canada. These outbreaks should renew efforts in policies and programs that can expand vaccination coverage, especially among young children. There is also a good economic case. Evidence shows that public funds spent on childhood measles, mumps and rubella immunization results in major cost savings from reduced visits to healthcare providers, fewer hospitalizations and premature deaths, as well as reduced time off by parents to care for sick children". - In Need of a Booster: How to Improve Childhood Vaccination Coverage in Canada
