The COVID-19 vaccination campaign is the largest mass vaccination campaign ever undertaken. As such, it presents an opportunity to identify and address longstanding systemic barriers to vaccination – including acceptance and uptake of vaccines beyond those that prevent COVID-19. New and reimagined interventions are required to develop or expand tools, education, and supports for healthcare providers as well as strategies and resources to support community-driven solutions.
There is no “one size fits all” solution, and a multifaceted approach, grounded in Canada’s diversity, is crucial for reaching all Canadians.

We propose disseminating a tool to support decision-making with regard to COVID-19 vaccination for pregnant and lactating Canadians, especially those belonging to Indigenous, racialized and marginalized groups, and study its impact on vaccine hesitancy.
