The Thompson Local News


Childhood vaccine rates here in northern Manitoba are high according the Northern Health Region.

 

Stats from the NRHA say that the rates are in the 80-95% range, and vary depending on age and the type of vaccine.

 

The health region says that those numbers are very good, and are "reflective of our strong public health and community efforts".

 

The Medical Officers of Health for the region, Doctor Randy Gesell and Doctor Michael Isaac, said that high rates of vaccine coverage provides both individual and herd immunity, which protects those in the community who are more vulnerable to infection.

 

The World Health Organization recently released statistics for 2017, saying that just over 50 percent of the world has been vaccinated for measles and rubella, and that 20 million children worldwide did not receive full immunization last year.
