Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Vaccine Program for High-Risk Older Adults
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common virus that infects the lungs and airways (breathing passages). RSV is a major cause of lower respiratory illness, particularly among young children (2 years old or younger) and older adults (60 years old or older). RSV is usually a mild disease that goes away on its own. However, RSV can sometimes lead to serious infections like pneumonia or bronchiolitis in very young children and older adults.
To learn more about the signs and symptoms of RSV, as well as the RSV Prophylaxis Program for High-Risk Infants, visit the government of Ontario’s page on Respiratory Syncytial Virus.
