The Benefits of Vaccination

There continues to be an increased risk for severe outcomes as a result of COVID-19 in the elderly population due to age and underlying medical conditions, particularly in shared living spaces like long-term care homes. Vaccination remains the best defense against COVID-19. Regardless of a home’s specific vaccination policy, all individuals entering long-term care homes, including residents, staff, caregivers, and visitors, are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated and stay up-to-date with all recommended COVID-19 doses. All vaccines provided as part of Ontario’s vaccine rollout are safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccine booster doses help to increase protection against symptomatic infection and severe outcomes at the individual level and help to reduce transmission at the population level. Evidence shows that vaccine effectiveness against symptomatic infection wanes over time, with little to no protective effect six months after the second dose, and that protection from infection is restored shortly after receiving a booster dose to between 50 and 70%. Additionally, evidence shows that booster doses are highly effective against severe outcomes, including hospitalizations and death. The more people who have up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations, the lower the risk of infection and the lower the chance that COVID-19 will enter homes and affect the lives of residents.

For more information on recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccine, please review the Ministry of Health’s guidance document Staying Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines: Recommended Doses. Additional information about COVID-19 vaccination can also be found online on the COVID-19 vaccines for Ontario website.
