The Importance​ ​of Vaccines

Produce Immun​​​​​​​ity

Vaccines are products that produce immunity to a specific disease such as COVID-19. When you are immune to COVID-19 you can be exposed to it without becoming sick. If you do become infected, the vaccine can prevent more severe illness.

Protect Every​one

The COVID-19 vaccine will also help protect everyone around you. The more people in a community who are vaccinated, the harder it is for the virus to spread and mutate. This is called 'herd immunity' or 'community immunity'.

Redu​ce Risk

Reduced access to stable housing, income, clean water and health and social services place some Indigenous peoples at higher risk of COVID-19. The vaccine is one way that Indigenous people can protect themselves from this virus. The FNHA's Medical Officers strongly recommend that Indigenous people opt to get the vaccine when they are offered one.
