Tara Mawhinney created a new discussion in Public Health Surveillance

I am sharing a link to the updated draft of the PHSC Terms of Reference (ToR): ... The ToR were updated to clarify the role of the PHSC as it relates to the National Vaccine Catalogue (and its Expert User and Data Provider committee). The ToR will be on the Agenda for discussion at the June 6th PHSC call. Any comments or feedback are welcome, either through the Forum or during the PHSC call. Thanks, Tara

Perfect! Thanks.
Hey Tom, We had created a high-level generic agent concept for historical documentation purposes: 45861000087106 |Vaccine product containing Plasmodium falciparum antigen (medicinal product)| Here is the RFC if you'd like some context: https://informs.infoway-inforoute.ca/browse/SCT-17852 Hope this helps!

Tom Servaes created a new discussion in Public Health Surveillance

Has anyone encountered a person who received one of the new malaria vaccines? We were talking about this among the NB and NS teams and could not find any definition or code for Canada. Our current process is as a note on the file with attachment. We were wondering how other jurisdictions would document it. https://www.who.int/news-room/questions-and-answers/item/q-a-on-rts-s-malaria-vaccine TIA, Tom
