National Immunization Awareness Week
April 24th to 30th is National Immunization Awareness Week. This annual event aligns with World Immunization Week. Every year, it is an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination and recognize the incredible impact vaccines have in protecting people against diseases like polio, measles, and pertussis.

Mental Health, Addictions and Substance Use Health (MHASUH) Community dashboard
On April 18, OPH launched the new Mental Health, Addictions and Substance Use Health Community dashboard. This dashboard is the result of a multi-year collaboration, with the goal of improving the health status of the people of Ottawa in relation to mental health, addictions, and substance use health. This tool can be used to identify needs, inform systems and service planning, and contribute to building long-term promotion and prevention strategies in the community. To see the dashboard and learn more, please visit our website at OttawaPublicHealth.ca/WellnessDashboard
