Help shape COVID-19 vaccine awareness and uptake

December 9, 2020

The Public Health Agency of Canada wants your input to create effective resources for health professionals.

As you may already be aware, Health Canada has approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with approval of other vaccines also expected in the days and weeks ahead.

While we await further details of the vaccine rollout, ACP encourages pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to participate in the Public Health Agency of Canada’s (PHAC) survey of healthcare providers. There is need to learn more about the training and resources that will be most useful to help you discuss COVID-19 vaccines with your patients, and to receive the vaccine yourself when they become available. While the questionnaire places some emphasis on healthcare providers who engage in vaccination-related activities in their practice, PHAC is interested in the views of all healthcare providers.

The online survey will be available to complete until December 13, 2020.

The survey can be accessed here: COVID-19 vaccine resource and training needs survey for health care providers.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Immunization Promotion and Partnerships Unit at phac.vaccination.aspc@canada.ca.
