COVID-19 RESOURCES


COVID-19 vaccine information tools for doctors

Doctors of BC’s COVID-19 updates page now contains a number of products specifically for doctors. These include answers to questions doctors have about their own vaccinations and the mass vaccination roll-out. There is a section for patients and a toolkit for doctors’ practices. Materials arriving soon will include downloadable fact sheets and FAQs for patients. The Doctors of BC communications team is also developing a marketing campaign to address vaccine hesitancy and encourage the public to get vaccinated.
