Canada’s largest nurses’ organization has launched a national campaign encouraging the public to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions released a public service announcement and website providing information and resources about the distribution, safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
Nurses have launched this campaign because we know that the COVID-19 vaccines administered in Canada are tested, safe and the most effective way to resume the activities we’ve all put on hold for a year – like seeing our friends and family.
The campaign aims to decrease vaccine hesitancy across Canada, particularly among people who may be concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. As patient and health care advocates, nurses are asking the public to trust scientific evidence and do their part to contribute to herd immunity and the safety of their families and communities.
