Maintaining vaccine enthusiasm

As COVID-19 cases begin to drop across the province, ensuring individuals follow public health guidance if booster shots are required could prove to be a challenge.  

Researchers at the University of Guelph traced the history of vaccination programs in Canada and identified the enthusiasm for vaccines often peaks in the middle of a crisis but begins to taper as active case counts decrease.  

According to researchers, by continuing to combat vaccine disinformation and ensuring the widespread availability of vaccines, public health and government leaders can maintain an uptake in immunizations.
