"In Canada, the current vaccine financing system is a mix of public and private sector effort, which funds the purchase and administration of recommended vaccines for children, adolescents and adults. Most childhood immunization programs are publicly funded, whereas public funding is much more limited for adolescents and adult immunization. In general, limited financing and the lack of timely funding decisions represent dominant barriers in achieving access to recommended vaccines across all age groups. In recent years, the growing number and cost of new vaccines have created a crisis within the vaccine reimbursement landscape, with increased stress on the both public and private provider systems. In particular, as for other countries, there is significant apprehension tat the Canadian funding system my not be capable of keeping pace with newly approved/recommended vaccines in the near-term future". - Pathway to Access: Toward Sustainable Funding (Part 6 of Vaccine White Paper Series)
