Vaccines are a safe and effective way to combat COVID-19, and the CSI together with other Canadian scientists, encourage all Canadians to get vaccinated as soon as possible. We are eager to be vaccinated ourselves, along with our families, friends and colleagues. Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect Canadians and we stand in support of this important initiative by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
