What is the study?
Every year, the Canadian National Vaccine Safety (CANVAS) network conducts an influenza (flu) safety surveillance survey. The study is a rapid online assessment of the annual influenza vaccination programs at seven sites across Canada. More than 20,000 people who receive their flu vaccine participate.
Why are we doing this study?
The purpose of this study is to monitor side-effects after the flu shot using an online survey. We are interested in learning about any new health problems that develop after receiving the flu shot which result in missed work days and/or a visit to a doctor or prevented daily activities. 2015 marks the 56th year of the VEC participation in this study
