Legal Roles and Responsibilities

As outlined in Section 1 of the Yukon Immunization Manual:

  • The provision of routine immunization programs and targeted immunization programs is an essential or "core" program that is delivered throughout the Yukon.
  • All immunizing facilities collaborate with the Yukon Immunization Program in carrying out vaccine management, surveillance, and evaluation.
  • These facilities are responsible for the planning, delivery, and evaluation of immunization services
  • All vaccine providers will:
    • Follow the Yukon Immunization Program guidelines for immunization.
    • Ensure that vaccine maintains potency (optimal transportation, storage, handling, and conservation), and report in a timely manner any cold chain incidents. For more information see Section 7, Storage and Handling of Immunization Agents. 
    • Document all immunizations given and historical vaccines in the client's Panorama record. For more information, see Section 9, Documentation Guidelines
    • Report all adverse events following any immunizations to their nurse in charge or facility manager and the Yukon Immunization Program Manager. For more information, see Section 13, Adverse Events Following Immunization
    • Report all suspected vaccine errors to the Yukon Immunization Program Manager.

The Yukon Immunization Program's inventory, order, and waste forms will soon be available here.

Frequently Asked Questions


We are in the process of transitioning to Panorama to track inventory and wastage. In order to make this transition, the Yukon Immunization Program (YIP) needs to have a monthly count of vaccines and their associated lot numbers to ensure we have accounted for all products across the Yukon. Our current process does not allow us to track which lot numbers are sent with each order. Thus, an end-of-month inventory count with lot numbers is our best way to track our products. We recognize that this is an additional task for our immunizers, and thank you for your patience as we make this transition to the new inventory module on Panorama.


The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) is a national advisory committee of experts in the fields of pediatrics, infectious diseases, immunology, pharmacy, nursing, epidemiology, pharmaco-economics, social science, and public 3 health. NACI has been providing guidance on the use of vaccines currently or newly approved for use in Canada to the Government of Canada since 1964. The Committee reports to the Vice-President of the Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Branch and works with staff of the Centre for Immunization and Respiratory Infectious Diseases of the Public Health Agency of Canada to provide ongoing and timely medical, scientific, and public health advice. NACI makes recommendations for the use of vaccines currently or newly approved for use in humans in Canada, including the identification of groups at risk for vaccine preventable diseases for whom vaccination should be targeted. NACI knowledge syntheses, analyses and recommendations on vaccine use in Canada are included in published literature reviews, statements, and updates.


YIP has developed a new way to track your immunization training progress on YG learn. Training requirements vary based on your designation and where you work, and as such, immunizers will be completing specific trainings for their scope of practice. Immunizers will be able to view their progress on YG learn using “My Progress Report.” This will allow immunizers to see which courses have been completed, which courses are outstanding, and will show when immunizers are due for re-certification. If you have any questions about immunizer training or YG Learn, please contact


All routine vaccine products (including standard, non-standard, travel, and influenza) are available to order on the last working day of the month. Orders will be processed and available for pickup or delivery 7 to 10 business days after your order was submitted.


For all COVID-19 vaccines, health facilities have been assigned specific order windows. Rural facilities are to order COVID-19 vaccines on a monthly basis, Whitehorse facilities on a bi-weekly basis, and the Whitehorse Convention centre on a weekly basis. Orders are due by 11:00am on your assigned ordering date. Please refer to the Immunization Ordering Calendar to determine your allocated ordering date.


Any urgent requests outside of the stated ordering window should be emailed to Urgent requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  


Vaccine providers should refer to the Yukon Immunization Manual – Section 13 – Adverse Events Following Immunization for criteria on reporting adverse events following immunization (AEFI), and report AEFIs by entering them into Panorama. If the provider does not have access to Panorama, then notify the Yukon Immunization Program by fax to 867-393-4357.
