COVID-19 Immunization Awareness Campaign
Getting immunized is crucial to making our workplaces safe and healthy for our patients and each other. We know vaccination is one of the most effective ways to protect our health and we strongly encourage everyone to get the vaccine once they are eligible to receive it.
We recognize that different people will have different feelings and concerns about COVID-19 immunization. And that’s ok. But it’s important we have the same information. We need to support each other through this process to learn as much as we can to make an informed choice about getting vaccinated.
Joining me this week to talk to me about vaccine hesitancy are:
- Dr. Kristin Klein, Medical Officer of Health, Provincial Population and Public Health
- Dr. Lynora Saxinger, Physician and Medical Lead, AHS Antimicrobial Stewardship, North, and co-chair of the Scientific Advisory Group
- Dr. Stephen Tsekrekos, Medical Director, Workplace Health and Safety
By continuing to build trust, encouraging each other to find fact-based information and having ongoing conversations with each other about COVID-19 immunization, we can maintain a work environment that promotes worker and patient safety.
Through our Stick with the Facts. Stick Together campaign, we can create a safe space to support staff and patients who may have questions about COVID-19 immunization. Check out insite.ahs.ca/sticktogether to find out how you can get involved with the campaign today.
All approved vaccines are safe, effective and will help prevent serious illness. If you want to fact-check something you’ve heard about the vaccine, you can also post a comment on the myth-busting tool. An AHS expert will validate the fact or debunk the myth. You can also find answers to commonly asked questions on our public and staff FAQs. To view more information about COVID-19, see www.ahs.ca/covid.
