Chantal Sauvageau completed her Doctorate in Medicine at Laval University in 1999, and obtained a Master’s degree in Community Health from the same University in 2002. She then completed her specialty training and obtained her certificate of specialist in Community Health from the Collège des médecins du Québec and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, in 2004. She is a consultant in infectious diseases at the National Institute of Public Health of Quebec, and the Regional Directorate of Public Health of the national capital. She is a researcher in the Immunization Research Team of the Research Centre of the CHU de Québec, and an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at Laval University. She has been an active member of the Committee on Immunization of Quebec (CIQ) since 2008. She is also a member of the shingles working group as well as of the HPV working group of the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI). In 2013, she participated in the work of the World Health Organization (WHO), leading to a WHO recommendation on the use of a 2-dose vaccination schedule for HPV vaccine.

Evaluate the impact of HPV vaccination and the vaccination against chickenpox and shingles

Her main research papers focus on HPV vaccination, particularly on the evaluation of the immunogenicity and efficacy of available vaccines, on the impact of varicella and shingles vaccination, on the training of healthcare professionals on immunization, and the problem of vaccine delays. More specifically, by conducting clinical trials, her projects aim to know the immune response to vaccines: duration of protection, decrease in antibody levels, impact of interactions and co-administration of vaccines on the immune response, effect of a booster dose, etc. Among other things, she is the co-principal investigator of a randomized clinical trial named ICI-HPV, having recruited 3,300 14-16 year old girls from 2013 to 2016, who are followed for 5 years. The trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a 2-dose schedule of HPV vaccination, 10 years after receiving the first dose of vaccine at an age of 9 or 10.

She also collaborates on projects related to the modeling and analysis of the cost-effectiveness of planned or implemented vaccination programs, as well as on studies related to the acceptability of implemented vaccination programs, by measuring the immunization coverage rate, as well as the perception of health professionals and of the population.
