    Transmission after vaccinations

    It has only been a few months since people around the world began to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

    COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada are highly effective at preventing illness. However, our current understanding of virus transmission following vaccination and the duration of immunity following vaccination is still limited. The Government of Canada is reviewing the scientific evidence as it becomes available.

    As the science and evidence evolves and our knowledge increases, our policies to keep Canadians safe will change.

    Testing and quarantine requirements for travellers
