🇨🇦💉@COVID19Up: Canadians will likely be required to get a COVID-19 booster injection every nine months to remain “up to date,” according to Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, who told reporters that the term “fully vaccinated” now makes no sense.
“Nine months is very clear and will help people understand why ‘up to date’ is the right way to think about vaccination now,” he said. “‘Fully vaccinated’ makes no sense now. It’s about ‘up to date.’ So am I up to date in my vaccination? Have I received a vaccination in the last nine months?”
According to the Toronto Sun, when Duclos was asked if there would be a return of a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for boosters in the fall, he replied: “we must continue to fight against COVID.”
“We want to be prepared for next fall and that requires an up-to-date vaccination which is based on the nine months,” he added.
