"Following regulatory approval, Health Canada continues to monitor the safety and effectiveness of vaccines on an ongoing basis, e.g. through stringent post-market surveillance and lot release programs. Other key elements of the post-licensure regulation of vaccines include Health Canada oversight of post-market changes, as well as inspection and enforcement activities. Overall, with this level of pre- and post-licensure regulation, vaccines used in Canada are highly effective and safe, and have demonstrated excellent value in terms of protecting public health and contributing to the greater 'public good'". - Pathway to Access: Health Canada Oversight (Part 4 of Vaccine White Paper Series)
