Canadian Immunization Guide (CIG) Acknowledgements

The Canadian Immunization Guide (CIG) is published and maintained by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) leads the development of the CIG with contributions from other experts, including the Committee to Advise on Tropical medicine and Travel (CATMAT) members. NACI and CATMAT regularly publish evidence-based statements on the use of vaccines.

In the development of recommendations, there is a rigorous review process along with consultations with other committees and experts. We would like to formally acknowledge the NACI members, CATMAT members and other contributing experts for their efforts in keeping the Canadian Immunization Guide an up-to-date Canadian resource. We would also like to acknowledge the support and efforts of Public Health Agency of Canada employees and other federal public servants who participate in keeping the CIG up-to-date.  The Statements and Statement Updates which inform the content of the CIG include full acknowledgements of the contributions of committee members and other experts who participated in their development. The Public Health Agency of Canada would also like to acknowledge the dedication and contributions of individuals that were involved in the CIG Renewal which began in 2012.
