The vaccines are safe.
COVID-19 vaccines have been rigorously tested during their development and then carefully reviewed by Health Canada experts. Only vaccines that are proven to be safe, effective and of high quality are authorized for use in Canada.
The vaccines work.
Scientific and medical evidence show that vaccination can help protect you against COVID-19. Studies are also showing that vaccinated people may have less severe illness if they do become ill from COVID-19.
The vaccines protect you.
Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to protect your health. COVID-19 vaccines provide instructions to your body's immune system to recognize and fight off the virus that causes COVID-19. The vaccines work with your body's natural defences to develop protection against COVID-19.
The vaccines can't give you COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccines authorized in Canada cannot give you COVID-19 because they don't contain the virus that causes it.
