Over the course of this pandemic there have been multiple COVID‑19 outbreaks in long-term care homes across the country, contributing to a major toll on the lives and wellbeing of countless residents, staff, and visitors.
Join us in this second CITF/CanCOVID Seminar Series: Research Results & Implications, as eight COVID‑19 Immunity Task Force (CITF)-supported research teams from across Canada unveil their latest findings. They will present and discuss their respective studies that offer strong evidence to support the protection of Canada’s long-term care residents, staff, and visitors.
Hear the evidence behind the latest policy decisions, including supporting the eligibility of this vulnerable population for a third dose of a COVID‑19 vaccine in many provinces and territories. We will then host a question-and-answer session at the end of the presentation.
