National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI)
NACI is a national advisory committee of experts in the fields of pediatrics, infectious diseases, immunology, medical microbiology, internal medicine and public health. The Committee reports to the Assistant Deputy Minister of Infectious Disease Prevention and Control, and works with staff of the Centre for Immunization and Respiratory Infectious Diseases of the Public Health Agency of Canada to provide ongoing and timely medical, scientific and public health advice.
NACI makes recommendations for the use of vaccines currently or newly approved for use in humans in Canada, including the identification of groups at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases for whom vaccination should be targeted. NACI knowledge syntheses, analyses and recommendations on vaccine use in Canada are included in published literature reviews, statements and updates. NACI recommendations are also published in the Canadian Immunization Guide.
