Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine

The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease that was discovered in January 2020. Most people infected by the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.

The best way to prevent the disease from spreading is being well informed about the virus and how it spreads. Together, we can protect ourselves and our loved ones from the virus by washing our hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer frequently and not touching our face.

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important to wear a mask and cough into your flexed elbow.

In May 2021, the Canadian government approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 to available to youth 12 years old and older.
