Ontario Ranks Highest in Free Bird Flu Vaccination Rates

Following announcement of free flu shots in Ontario, flu vaccination rates have doubled to 60%, reveals two new studies// conducted recently.

It was during the first bird flu season that free bird flu shots were announced in Ontario. During the same time, the rate of vaccination rose to 36% form 18%. When other states are taken into consideration, the rate soared from 12.7% to 21%.

‘Basically, it has had an effect. There's been a definite success from the point of view of the percentage of people who end up getting a flu shot,’ said Helen Johansen, a senior analyst with Statistics Canada and lead author of the second research.
