On December 8, 2020, the Public Health Agency of Canada released its COVID-19 Immunization Plan: Saving Lives and Livelihoods. The document outlines Canada’s immunization plan and proposes the steps towards a safe, effective and informed roll-out.
The plan involves the collaboration of federal, provincial and territorial (F/P/T) governments, Indigenous leaders, and partners in Canada and around the world to meet this challenge through a principled and evidence-informed approach that puts protecting the health and safety of Canadians first.
The goal of Canada’s COVID-19 immunization response is to enable as many Canadians as possible to be immunized as quickly as possible against COVID-19, while ensuring that high-risk populations are prioritized. While the immunization response is large and multifaceted, Canada is in a strong position to take on this challenge.
This plan outlines Canada’s approach to widespread immunization against COVID-19, with the first immunizations beginning as soon as possible to priority populations.
