免疫接种被认为是改善全世界健康结果的关键公共卫生干预。遗憾的是，与其他发达国家在实现儿童和青少年的最佳接受疫苗方面，加拿大并不依赖于相比良好。避免疫苗犹豫不决，定义为避免或拒绝疫苗的延迟，尽管存在疫苗接种服务，这是破坏摄取率的问题[3.]。This practice point offers evidence-based guidance at the provincial/territorial level for immunization programs, clinics and office practices, on how best to address hesitancy and improve vaccine uptake rates. Companion documents to this practice point include two for clinicians, entitled ‘Working with vaccine hesitant parents: An update[4.]and ‘加拿大的八元件疫苗安全系统：医疗保健工人的底漆'[5.]
The reasons underlying vaccine hesitancy are multiple, variable and not necessarily confined to particular groups or communities[3.]。Even within a given province or territory, vaccine hesitancy is not uniform but tends to occur in clusters or pockets (e.g., in a religious community or group focused on natural or non-traditional medical practices). Determining what factors underlie hesitancy in a particular locale and how best to intervene are critical steps in this process.
对于省和领土，由题为“Tailoring immunization programmes to reach underserved groups – the TIP approach’, could be particularly helpful. While guidance would need to be adapted to fit Canadian contexts, its application to different European subgroups has improved vaccine uptake significantly[6.][7.]。关键程序的第一步是发现under-immunized subgroups in Canada. Identifying such targets is best served by having searchable provincial/territorial electronic immunization databases[8.]。在诊所或办公实践中，当保存电子医疗记录时，可以标记免疫患者文件，以及医疗保健提供者识别的任何共同的潜在因素。在美国开发的调查工具，以识别疫苗犹豫不决的父母[9.]could also be adapted for Canadian contexts and used at the clinic level.
Studies from many different countries have repeatedly shown that health care provider beliefs around immunization have a strong influence on patient vaccine acceptance[10.]-[12.]The more confident health care providers are about vaccine safety and efficacy, the more parents connected with them share these beliefs. Similarly, a health care provider’s own immunization status tends to find reflection in their patients’ vaccine records. Not only do the perceptions and beliefs of health care providers have an impact on parental decision-making around immunization, but their attitudes and behaviours when working with families can also influence whether they will come forward with concerns or accept immunization[13.]。
For optimal outcome, parents need to receive consistent and accurate information about vaccine safety and benefits from all their health care providers, and this information must be conveyed in a respectful, positive manner[5.][14.]。To ensure continuity, immunization programs, clinics and office practices must keep all associated health care providers up-to-date with their immunization status and train them to relay information accurately and positively, especially because studies have shown that some health care providers are vaccine-hesitant themselves[15.]。All health care providers need to be well educated on immunization benefits and safety issues, with those who are directly involved in delivery being additionally conversant regarding: best practices; the specific and serious risks of vaccine-preventable diseases; possible vaccine side effects; Canada’s adverse event surveillance systems; the importance of clear language, ‘framing’ (i.e., presumptive versus participatory approaches) and motivational interviewing techniques; and pain mitigation strategies[4.][5.][16.]-[18.]。鉴于医疗保健提供者的许多压力在不同的实践领域保持最新，免疫更新应该是短暂的，有吸引力的且易于访问的。
A review of strategies known to increase vaccine uptake include:
Knowledge-building around immunization is a recognized factor in increasing vaccine uptake[19.]-[20.], but knowledge alone is not enough. Shaping positive beliefs about immunization, among individuals and within the community, is an important contributor to uptake. Targeting hearts and minds and emphasizing vaccine acceptance as the social norm can help but more maybe needed[26.]。Effective communication campaigns are possible even for ‘hard to reach’ groups, as has been demonstrated in Australia[27.]。In developing a campaign it is important to remember that the same message can be heard very differently by different population subgroups[28.]。A key element in any campaign is to evaluate its impact and then readjust as needed[25.]。Messaging and tools should be pre-tested to ensure they are efficacious and likely to reduce hesitancy in the target group. Sharing ‘lessons learned’ and proven-effective tools and resources across jurisdictions can optimize use of time and monies. Resource-sharing becomes especially relevant when messaging non-dominant subgroups (e.g., rural remote or vulnerable inner-city youth, or a specific religious group). Evidence informed guidance on how to address vocal vaccine deniers in a public forum is available[29.]。通过将免疫信息编织到学校课程中，帮助塑造学生的疫苗信仰和验收行为可能很好地获得了与环境问题课程，欺凌和科学宣传的课程中的类似效益。Ontario has incorporated child and youth vaccine education into their免疫2020现代化计划。Evidence is also accruing that suggests that highlighting consensus among medical scientists on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines can increase public support for vaccines[30.]。先发制人地突出虚假权利要求，提前反驳潜在的反作用及，科学旦尼尔斯使用的突出策略表明了在接种公众反对气候变化怀疑论者的言论中的益处[31.]。同样可能持有用于反击疫苗怀疑论者。
某些省级/地区免疫方案需求与联邦政府合作最符合[5.]and/or with leading nongovernmental organizations, such as the Canadian Paediatric Society or Canadian Public Health Association. Collaborating with respected community leaders can also broaden community support for immunization and improve uptake rates。A review of the major world religions found that most doctrines support caring for others, preserving life and community responsibilities[32.]。只要Christian Science specifically does not support immunization and even this is not rigid。需要更广泛地认可和使用免疫的教义支持，而不仅仅是在免疫计划层面，而是由前线卫生工作者。当对疫苗提出异议时，文化或宗教社区和盟军医疗保健专业人员之间的合作工作可能有助于解决这个问题[33.][34.]。Religious leaders communicating in partnership with health authorities during a disease outbreak can have a powerful effect, and has led to significant increases in vaccine acceptance in some communities[34.]。
