Influenza virus vaccine

Vaccination remains the best way to be protected from influenza. This vaccine protects at least 70% of healthy persons from the illness. 


Vaccine against tetanus

Tetanus is a vaccine- preventable disease caused by a bacterial spore which is found in the intestines of animals and in the soil. It is an often fatal disease which affects all age groups. A person infected with the tetanus bacterium experiences painful muscle contractions that begin in the neck (hence the popular name ʺlockjawʺ) and then continue down to attack the muscles of the torso. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends immunization against tetanus.

Vaccine against HPV – Human Papilloma-virus

Gardasil®  vaccine provides protection against four HPV types, two that cause approximately 70 per cent of all uterine cervical cancers (HPV-16 and HPV-18) and two that cause approximately 90 per cent of all anogenital warts in males and females (HPV-6 and HPV-18).

HPV vaccines will not impact on an existing infection or any of the outcomes of existing HPV infections, such as anogenital warts. The vaccines prevent infection against the virus types for which they are prescribed. There is currently no vaccine that will protect against all HPV types.

Vaccine against hepatitis A, A&B, B

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Hepatitis can be caused by viruses and can lead to serious health consequences.

There are several different forms of the virus, including types A, B, C, D, E and G.

The most common types of viral hepatitis in Canada are hepatitis A, B and C.

The Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is most often spread through contact with food or water contaminated with the virus.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are both spread through contact with contaminated blood, and HBV is also sexually transmitted. Both HBV and HCV can lead to serious liver damage, liver cancer and the need for liver transplants. In Canada, about 600,000 persons are living with HBV and/or HCV.

There are vaccines available to prevent HAV and HBV. At this time, however, no licensed vaccine exists to protect you from HCV infection, so changing high risk behaviours is paramount in protecting yourself from infection and in preventing the spread of infection to others.
