Abbotsford family doctors working to keep community safe and healthy

Over 505 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered globally. Of those, more than 4.5 million were in Canada.

“Everyone wants things to go back to normal and the way that we will get there is through community vaccination,” explains Dr. Hardeep Aujla, Abbotsford Physician and member of the Abbotsford Division of Family Practice.

“Physicians are frequently asked, ‘which vaccine is the best one to get?’ and the answer is simple: the one that you are offered,” adds Dr. Aujla. “The Health Canada-approved, and currently offered, vaccines are equally effective at reducing serious illness, hospitalization and death. With hundreds of millions of vaccines administered across the globe, real world data shows that these vaccines are safe.”

The Division has been providing physician-led COVID-19 communications to the public since the pandemic began, both on the Division’s social media channels and in community publications.

“The Abbotsford Division of Family Practice is working hard with our health systems partners to ensure that everyone in Abbotsford has access to optimal health care, which includes the approved COVID-19 vaccines,” says Monica Mamut, Executive Director of the Division.

The BC COVID-19 immunization plan is being directed by the Ministry of Health at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/vaccine/plan.
