On February 18, the second town hall of the series focused on the question: “What do COVID-19 vaccines mean for me?” As vaccination rollout ramps up across the country, many Canadians have questions about who receives prioritization first and why; estimated timelines for receiving a vaccine; and how the process might look when it’s your turn. Leading this discussion for viewers was The Globe’s award-winning Health Reporter and Columnist André Picard, who was joined by Dr. Christine Chambers, Killam Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience and Pediatrics at Dalhousie University; Dr. Danièle Behn Smith, Deputy Provincial Health Officer overseeing Indigenous health for B.C.’s provincial health officer (Dr. Bonnie Henry); Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of the Wellesley Institute and a professor in the department of psychiatry at the University of Toronto; and Dr. Sharon Straus, Physician-in-Chief at St. Michael’s Hospital and a professor in the department of medicine at the University of Toronto.
