Rx Canada has contracted with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to provide an emergency data monitoring and reporting system to identify viral outbreaks, track their progression, and monitor national drug supplies.
Flu Monitor is the monthly report to PHAC on the national surveillance program.
The National Antiviral and OTC Medication Surveillance Program was established in May by participating Canadian retail pharmacies working with Rx Canada.
If you have questions about the report or the program, or if your pharmacy is not participating in the National Antiviral and OTC Surveillance Program and would like to do so, please contact Wendy Nelson, President and CEO, Rx Canada, at 905-821-2270, extension 222.
