NSHA looking for more responses to immunization survey

Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA)

The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is looking for more parents of children born in 2011 to respond to an immunization survey.

The survey, launched last November across the province, is meant to highlight the challenges and barriers parents and guardians face when immunizing their children.

Project Lead Lori McCracken says they've received over 1,700 responses of the required 3,000 responses.

The NSHA is seeking more responses specifically from Antigonish, Cumberland, Guysborough, Hants, Inverness, Richmond, and Victoria counties.

The focus on children born in 2011 is because they're old enough for both their infant and pre-school immunizations, showing data for two important immunization milestones that are not currently collected.
