An Update on COVID-19 Vaccines

Since the first COVID-19 vaccine was approved for use in Canada on December 9, 2020, the vaccine rollout has moved extremely quickly. More than 60% of Canadians have received at least 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Yet questions and uncertainty remain. How well do the vaccines currently available protect against the COVID variants? Is herd immunity achievable? Are vaccines the answer to the pandemic? Our expert panel will cut through the uncertainty with direct answers to these and other important questions.
