"This report compares vaccination uptake rates for COVID-19 vaccines with those for other vaccine-preventable diseases including influenza, shingles, and pneumococcal disease among older Canadians. Uptake rates for the latter three vaccines are much lower and in the case of influenza and pneumococcal disease, have yet to achieve PHAC’s target vaccination rates of 80% among adults aged 65 years and older. This report also analyzes Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout and identifies five important factors that contributed to the record high rates of vaccination that have been achieved among older Canadians." - Lessons Learned: What Successful COVID-19 Immunization Efforts Taught Us About Improving Vaccine Coverage Among Older Canadians for Other Vaccine-Preventable Diseases
