Canada Confronts mRNA Vaccine Misinformation
Canada's Ottawa based Public Health Agency stated on January 10, 2021, 'As vaccines roll out across the country and as the Canadian and global medical, public health and research communities continue to monitor the emergence and impact of these strains actively, it is more crucial than ever to remain vigilant. This means keeping up with all public health measures - maintaining physical distance, washing your hands frequently, wearing a mask, and staying home, even if you have mild symptoms.'
Furthermore, 'It is also imperative that Canadians continue to ensure that they are using trusted and credible sources when seeking information about COVID-19 vaccines, including that relating to mRNA vaccines. There is a lot of misinformation circulating online, which can easily confuse or mislead Canadians.'
'For additional trustworthy information about COVID-19, the Government of Canada website, Canada.ca/coronavirus, is a good place to start. You can also find reliable information on your provincial and local health agency website, as well as from international agencies like the World Health Organization.
