Support COVID-19 Vaccinations

Physicians and primary care providers have an important role to play in building vaccine confidence among patients.

Research shows that some individuals who are typically accepting of vaccines have unique concerns about COVID-19 vaccines, leading them to refuse or delay vaccination. According to a recent study, at least two-thirds of Canadians think it's very important for their health care provider to explain possible vaccine side effects and rare reactions, effectiveness and safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Research by the Ontario Medical Association shows that physicians are the most trusted source of public health advice, trusted by 86 per cent of all Ontarians when asked about COVID-19 vaccines.
