Annual Influenza Report

Surveillance data is used to identify and monitor the arrival of influenza, its geographic spread, intensity of activity, characteristics of those infected, as well as severity and changing trends in order to guide prevention and control recommendations.

Annual Report of Immunization Surveillance

Immunization is one of the most effective and cost-efficient health interventions of modern times.

The provincial immunization registry from 1988 plays a key role in ensuring that residents in Manitoba receive all recommended immunizations. The aim of the Annual Report is to provide an overall picture of immunizations in the province. This information is used to inform priority setting, policy development, program planning and evaluation.
