Vaccine hesitancy a looming hurdle to ending pandemic

A COVID-19 vaccine is closer than ever, but a sizable minority of Canadians are hesitant to roll up their sleeves. Vaccine hesitancy isn’t about anti-vaxxers, but those who have questions about how quickly vaccines have been developed. Experts, including Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam, say convincing the undecided is critical to ending the pandemic.

Correction: A previous version of this story contained a miscalculation in the number of COVID-19 cases in Canada that could result in death. It has been removed.
