"FluWatch is Canada's national surveillance system that monitors the spread of flu and flu-like illnesses on an on-going basis. The FluWatch program consists of a network of labs, hospitals, doctor's offices and provincial and territorial ministries of health. Program objectives include to:
• Detect flu outbreaks across the country as early as possible
• Provide timely up-to-date information on flu activity in Canada and abroad to health professionals [and interested Canadians]
• Monitor circulating strains of the flu virus (like H1N1) and assess their sensitivity to antiviral medications, [such as Tamiflu and Relenza]. Antivirals, when used by doctors to treat flu, can help reduce the severity of the illness and the recovery time for a patient
• Provide information that the World Health Organization can use to make its recommendations on the best vaccine to use for seasonal flu shots."

FluWatch is Canada's national surveillance system that monitors the spread of flu and flu-like illnesses on an on-going basis. Activity Level surveillance is a component of FluWatch that provides an overall assessment of the intensity and geographical spread of laboratory-confirmed influenza cases, influenza-like-illness (ILI) and reported outbreaks for a given surveillance region. Activity Levels are assigned and reported by Provincial and Territorial Ministries of Health. A surveillance region can be classified under one of the four following categories: no activity, sporadic, localized or widespread.

Healthcare worker influenza immunization rates represents the influenza immunization rates for healthcare workers within the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the IWK. The rates are collected and reported annually by the health authorities. Healthcare workers who get the flu vaccine provide a layer of protection to themselves and to patients from getting influenza and help prevent influenza outbreaks. Measuring, monitoring, and reporting the rate of healthcare worker influenza immunization can assist hospitals with evaluating the effectiveness of their occupational health/infection prevention and control programs and explore ways to increase the number of healthcare workers who get the flu shot.
