Why encourage vaccination?

BC’s Restart Plan depends on all of us doing our part to stop the spread and transmission of COVID-19 in our communities. Vaccines do more than protect you from COVID-19, they also protect everyone around you. The more people in a community who are immunized against COVID-19, the harder it is for the virus to spread.

Community (herd) immunity could be reached when a large majority of people in BC are immunized against COVID-19. When you choose to be vaccinated against COVID-19, you are helping save lives by protecting your household and your entire community from the virus. The more people in a community who are immunized and protected from COVID-19, the harder it is for COVID-19 to spread.
