Abstract: Childhood immunization rates in Alberta do not meet national targets. Alberta does not have a mandatory program for routine immunizations, which results in both delayed immunizations and an under-immunized population. To identify demographic factors that contribute to these low vaccination rates National Census data collected for Alberta was analyzed. To make the sample more comprehensive data from community health centres and Hutterite colony locations were added. This analysis will use maps of immunization coverage rates to identify target areas for policy change. Separate maps for the demographic variables in those areas will be used to provide policy recommendations for improved rates in Alberta.
