Question: 

Is there a COVID-19 vaccine? When can I get it? I am over 65 years of age.

Answer: 

There is not an approved COVID-19 vaccine in Canada at this time. When a disease is new such as COVID-19, there is no vaccine until one is developed. Possible vaccines are under investigation. It can take time to develop a new vaccine. In the future, public health experts will make recommendations on the use of COVID-19 vaccines for people of different ages and health conditions.
