The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) strongly recommends that, among other high-risk groups, adults aged 65 years and older be vaccinated against influenza and pneumococcal disease. Yet, vaccination coverage rates remain low. The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) offers a unique opportunity to investigate the relationship between vaccine uptake and a wide range of sociodemographic, clinical, and behavioural factors among Canadian adults — particularly among older age groups. In this webinar, Dr. Giorgia Sulis shares her insights on the use of CLSA data to identify vaccine coverage gaps in older adults and inform policies that improve vaccine uptake in this demographic.
