History has shown the major impact vaccination has on improving public health, and today, COVID19 vaccines are clearly having a measurable impact in controlling the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.  The Canadian Society for Immunology supports unbiased, well-informed and non-politicized scientific debate as vaccine rollouts occur with unprecedented speed; however, we strongly condemn concerted disinformation campaigns that misuse selected scientific data to advance political or economic ideologies.  These activities not only undermine the scientific process but also actively impair public heath efforts and prolong the pandemic at great cost to us all.  We are proud of our scientists who continue to work hard to fully understand all facets of the immune response to this virus, as well as the response to vaccines.  Based on the overwhelming evidence for vaccine safety and efficacy, we urge all Canadians to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible; we stand firmly in support of the Public Health Agency of Canada.
