53 - Are vaccines treated the same way as prescription drugs for advertising purposes? For DTC, can the brand name of a vaccine be mentioned?

For the purpose of the PAAB Code, advertising for vaccines are treated the same way as for prescription drugs e.g. consistency with the monograph, evidence for comparative claims, data presentation, etc. For Direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising, the brand name of a vaccine can be mentioned. We would need to look at the entire context to determine whether there are other issues.
