Mass inoculation efforts are now underway in Canada, but the process may look quite different to individual Canadians depending on where they live. How do the vaccine rollout plans differ by region, and where are we seeing the most progress? What approaches seem to be working best, and what can be improved?

This town hall event, the fourth in a series on COVID-19 co-hosted by The Globe and Mail and the Royal Society of Canada, will feature an esteemed panel of experts discussing the key challenges involved in Canada’s ongoing efforts to reach herd immunity and end the pandemic.
