As Canada ramps up its COVID-19 immunization response with increased access to the COVID-19 vaccine supply over the spring, there is a need, more than ever, for reliable information on these vaccines and the vaccination plans.

Employment and Social Development Canada would like to invite you to a virtual information session on Canada’s vaccine rollout plan and public health measures against COVID-19 with senior officials from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

 This session will include a brief presentation on the steps the Government of Canada is taking to ensure access to a safe, effective and free COVID-19 vaccine in 2021. We will also take the opportunity to address some of your concerns during a question and answer period.
