Vaccine Myth Busting Resources for Clinicians

Health care administrators, clinicians and others have reported that some patients, residents in Long Term Care (LTC) homes and even health care providers may be feeling hesitant about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Experienced clinicians can play a large part in helping to reassure patients, residents and other health care providers, by explaining the science and facts about the COVID-19 vaccine.

We encourage you to have conversations with patient, residents, colleagues and others to dispel myths.

This resource includes responses to common myths, notes about vaccination in immunosuppressed older populations, ideas for having the conversation about vaccine hesitancy and several current clinical resources (be sure to check regularly for updates on any listed sites).
