What are the obstacles to everyone in Canada getting vaccinated?Updated: June 1st, 2021
As Dr Gauthier explains, there are many factors that can make getting vaccinated harder. There are issues in booking a vaccine appointment – like lack of knowledge of the public health system, not having enough time, not having the computer literacy skills, as well as barriers to actually getting the vaccine, such as difficulty reaching the vaccination points. Some of the communities hardest hit by COVID-19 are those who being left behind in the vaccine rollout, so Dr Gauthier is thankful for the existence of ‘Vax Hunters’ groups, whilst wishing there was a centralised booking system so these groups didn’t need to exist.
