COVID – 19 has had a massive effect on our health systems, our knowledge of infectious mechanisms, vaccine development, and public health strategy. We’ve learned a staggering amount about COVID, but questions still remain. What picture do the current Canadian statistics paint for the future? Whats the current status of new variants? Is there a vaccine being developed that will provide more lasting and more effective immunity? Will we need perennial boosters? Does having COVID afford better immunity? What happens after public health strategies are lifted? What’s the chance of returning to the “old” normal? If not, what does the “new” normal look like? Please join Epidemiologist Dr. Kat for another compelling session session on COVID -19 for the latest information on the pandemic.
