Got questions about COVID-19 vaccines?

by 22q Administrator

Recommendations from Dr. Anne Bassett
All individuals with 22q should receive the vaccine - the two doses protect very well against the worst effects of the virus.

All close contacts (e.g., immediate family members) of individuals with 22q should also receive the vaccine, in order to protect the person in the family likely to be most in danger of getting very sick from the virus (that is, the person with 22q).

If you have any concerns about getting COVID-19 vaccines, please check with your doctor as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can call the VaxFacts Clinic of the Scarborough Health Network to book a phone appointment. VaxFacts is an opportunity for a one-to-one, judgement-free phone call with a physician, to address any questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccines. They have successfully counselled hundreds of patients in the past couple of months and have now opened up to all of Canada. You can also have a look at their FAQ.
