COVID-19 Community of Practice for Ontario Family Physicians

Getting to herd immunity: addressing children, confidence, and complacency

Please join us for the twenty-fifth in our series 'Changing the way we work' on Friday, June 18, 2021 at 8:00-9:00am (ET). With more than 70% of eligible Ontarians vaccinated with their first dose, we have a lot to celebrate. How can we continue to increase this percentage and achieve herd immunity? At our next session, we will be continuing our discussion about the COVID-19 vaccines with a deeper dive into vaccinating in children and youth, hear about which Ontarians are yet to receive a first dose, and discuss how we can address those experiencing complacency or a lack of confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.
