Canadians will be required to get a booster shot every nine months for the foreseeable future, says Canadian Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos.
Duclos said that the previous definitions of “fully vaccinated” makes no sense, explaining that it’s more important that shots are “up to date” and whether or not a person has “received a vaccination in the last nine months.”
He added, “We will never be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.”
Duclos was asked if he was preparing Canadians for the return of vaccine mandates in the fall, he reportedly replied, “We must continue to fight against COVID.”
In other words, mandates won’t be ruled out just yet.
