The COVID-19 pandemic has a worldwide impact on all health services, including childhood immunizations. In Canada, there is limited data to quantify and characterize this issue. We conducted a descriptive, cross-sectional study by distributing online surveys to physicians across Ontario. The survey included three sections: provider characteristics, impact of COVID-19 on professional practice, and impact of COVID-19 on routine childhood immunization services. Multivariable logistic regression identified factors associated with modification of immunization services.

This knowledge mobilization project was conceptualized to increase awareness among breastfeeding mothers and the general public on safe infant feeding practices during the COVID-19 pandemic by addressing myths and misconceptions associated with breastfeeding practices, guiding breastfeeding mothers to make informed decisions around child feeding practices, and offering meaningful guidance in simple language through a short online animated video. This project was undertaken in four phases. During phase 1, an informal discussion was held with the breastfeeding mothers, service providers, and community partner in identifying issues surrounding lactation counselling facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. During phase 2, recommendations from 23 organizations with regard to breastfeeding during COVID-19 were reviewed and analyzed. During phase 3, using evidence from reliable sources, a 5-minute animated e-resource on breastfeeding during COVID-19 was conceptualized and developed. During phase 4, the e-resource was disseminated to the breastfeeding mothers, general public, post-secondary institutions, and organizations providing services to breastfeeding mothers in Canada.

investigate whether social determinants of health (SDOH) are predictive
of adherence to public health preventive measures and to describe
changes in adherence over time among parents and children. A
longitudinal study was conducted in children aged 0–10 years and their
parents through the TARGet Kids! COVID-19 Study in the Greater Toronto
Area, Canada (April–July 2020). This study included 335 parents (2108
observations) and 416 children (2632 observations).

This study aimed to examine how the occupational performance (OP) and participation levels of children with cancer changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sixty-seven children with cancer (aged 6–12 years) completed the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure by giving information about their OP and participation, and their parents completed the Child and Adolescent Scale of Participation via online interview techniques. Evaluations were repeated twice in April and September 2020 to determine the change in OP and participation levels of children with cancer due to the COVID-19.

The success in ending the COVID-19 pandemic rests partly on the mass uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine. Little work has been done to understand vaccine willingness among older adolescents and young adults. This is important since this age group may be less likely to adhere to public health guidelines.This article aims to understand willingness of getting a vaccine and reasons for vaccine hesitancy among a sample of older adolescents and young adults.

The effectiveness of public health interventions for mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic depends on individual
attitudes, compliance, and the level of support available to allow for compliance with these measures. The aim of this study was to
describe attitudes and behaviours towards the Canadian COVID-19 public health response, and identify risk-modifying behaviours based on socio-demographic characteristics.
A cross-sectional online survey was administered in May 2020 to members of a paid panel representative of the
Canadian population by age, gender, official language, and region of residence. A total of 4981 respondents provided responses
for indicators of self-reported risk perceptions, attitudes, and behaviours towards COVID-19 public health measures
