Established in 2018, Immunize.io is a Registered BC Non-profit organization dedicated to improving community and global immunization rates. Vaccinations are considered one of the greatest public health interventions saving countless lives from preventable disease daily. There continues to be a need to improve vaccination rates to protect the population by establishing “herd immunity”. New and improved vaccinations against devastating infectious diseases provide a continual evolution of preventative healthcare.
With the mission statement “Taking our best SHOT to IMMUNIZE the WORLD” we strive to address all domains of vaccine hesitancy and improve immunization rates across the world. Our focus is on providing education around the impact of disease and eliminating complacency around vaccinations. We instil confidence in the benefit and effectiveness of vaccinations with the benefits of protection against disease. Finally, we facilitate access to vaccination services though our partner locations and providing onsite workplace and community immunization clinics. Between us and our partner organizations we have improved vaccination access to British Columbians in the community, thereby protecting them against vaccine preventable disease. We don’t stop there, with our 1 for 1 program, each vaccine we provide here in Canada we donate one to the developing world, where more people are dying from vaccine preventable disease.
As front- line health care providers with expanded scope in Immunization provision, pharmacists play a key role in protecting the public against vaccine preventable disease.
Organizations who partner with Immunize.io protect their staff from vaccine preventable diseases, all the while supporting vaccination initiatives in less developed countries.
