Description / Summary

The Public Health Agency of Canada is seeking your organization’s support in reaching older adults with information about COVID-19 vaccine booster doses.

COVID-19 continues to be a serious health threat. While the virus can make anyone sick, Canadians over the age of 50 are at higher risk of complications.

Evidence indicates that the vaccines used in Canada are very effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Over time, protection from COVID-19 vaccines can decrease and vaccines have been less effective against the currently circulating Omicron variants. A booster dose increases the immune response and helps improve protection against severe outcomes by 90% or more.
