"This report describes the 2015 childhood National Immunization Coverage Survey (cNICS) and its findings. Parents were asked to report vaccines received by their child based on their vaccination card or booklet, and asked about their own knowledge, attitudes and beliefs (KAB) regarding vaccines.

All of the coverage estimates were below the corresponding national vaccination coverage goals. Among two-year-old children, 89% had received at least one dose of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine and 77% had received the recommended four doses of diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine. Coverage estimates were lower in older age groups. It is important to note that the cNICS data collection method is more likely to under-report than to over-report vaccine doses received by children and therefore likely to under-estimate vaccine coverage in all age groups." - Vaccine coverage in Canadian children : results from the 2015 childhood National Immunization Coverage Survey (cNICS)
