Vaccine safety in Canada
Wondering if vaccines are safe?
In Canada each and every vaccine goes on an incredible journey.
One that begins with careful research.
It's looked at from every angle by scientists and doctors.
Followed by testing and retesting in thousands of volunteers.
Each vaccine must be proven to be safe and to work before it can be given to you or your family.
But a vaccine’s journey does not end there.
For as long as it is used in Canada, its quality and safety are checked and rechecked:
- by Health Canada scientists who review it
- by doctors, nurses, and pharmacists who give it
- by public health teams who monitor it
Together, they keep careful watch over every vaccine to ensure the highest standards of safety.
