Mr. Speaker, the C. D. Howe Institute made it clear: low immunization rates in parts of Canada are a major health concern.
Only one province, Newfoundland and Labrador, has achieved the 95% vaccination coverage needed for herd immunity. Quebec is in the midst of a serious measles outbreak: 119 people, with another 700 at risk.
The report recommends better public education and real-time information on who is and who is not immunized.
Will the government implement, on an urgent basis, the C.D. Howe recommendations?
