Today, my co-chair of the Special Advisory Committee on the Epidemic of #OpioidOverdoses, Dr. Jennifer Russell, and I are releasing new modelling projections of #opioid-related deaths and the latest national data on the #OverdoseCrisis. canada.ca/en/public-heal…
Public health’s work is often invisible in our communities. It’s the outbreak that didn’t happen, the workplace injury that didn’t occur, and the opioid overdose that was avoided. Find out more in my #CPHOReport2021 canada.ca/en/public-heal…

3/3 These are a few of the things we can do to give the gift of better safety for everyone, but with a risk of even fully vaccinated people getting infected, extra wrapping with all precautions is best! #VaccinesPlus #GoodVentilation #WashMaskSpace ➡️ canada.ca/en/public-heal…
2/3 Best/safer: smaller gatherings with everyone eligible vaccinated (#COVID19Vaccine series + #booster if eligible); checking for symptoms & getting tested as needed; Staying home/isolating if symptomatic, test positive, or if in any doubt. More info: canada.ca/en/public-heal…
1/3 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: As cases continue to rise, we’re reminded that there’s no better gift than health this holiday season. To make sure you & yours are wrapped in protection, it may be prudent and necessary to adjust plans canada.ca/en/public-heal…Fg

3/3 To help reduce the risks, it’s best to keep gatherings small and plan/use layers of protection when in indoors with people not in our immediate household: #WashMaskSpace #MaskFit #GoodVentilation #VaccinesPlus ➡️ canada.ca/en/public-heal…
2/3 Getting #FullyVaccinated + #BoosterShot when eligible is important, and regardless of our vaccination status, keeping up with public health advice, assessing risks, and adjusting plans can help keep everyone safer over the holidays.
1/3 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦 : 8 provinces reported ↑ cases for the latest 7-day period compared to the prior, for a national weekly increase of 30%. Hospitalizations ↑ in Ontario/Quebec and the national trend change in trend could be next.health-infobase.canada.ca/covid-19/epide…Uo

4/4 As health authorities continuously monitor vaccine safety and effectiveness data, advice and programs are being regularly updated to ensure Canadians are provided and can maintain the best possible protection against #COVID19.
3/4 With the inclusion of 5 to 11 year olds, there are currently over 7 million Canadians eligible but not yet fully vaccinated against #COVID19 so it’s important we continue efforts to increase vaccine coverage to protect everyone we can.
2/4 Now, with approval of an mRNA #COVID19Vaccine for 5 to 11 year olds and recommendations for #COVID19 #booster doses in adults, we have even more opportunities to strengthen population-wide protection. #VaccinesWork
1/4 What a difference a year makes! > 63 million doses of #COVID19Vaccines given in Canada since vaccination began mid-Dec 2020, increasing total population protection: > 81% having at least 1 dose & > 76% are fully vaccinated!
Though there may still be bumps in our #COVID19 trajectory and additional challenges in the weeks ahead, we have proven layers of protection to see us through: #COVID19Vaccines #BoosterShot #VaccinesPlus➡️ canada.ca/en/public-heal…
3/3 For each of us, that means assessing personal/family risks and making safer choices; most importantly, completing a primary series of #COVID19Vaccines, getting a #booster when eligible, and always adding additional layers of protection ➡️canada.ca/en/public-heal…
2/3 Until we know more, it is prudent to approach the coming weeks with an abundance of caution + follow advice of local health authorities who will need to act quickly to control spread at the first sign of rapidly accelerating cases.
1/3 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦 : there is still uncertainty regarding the potential impact of th#Omicronon variant, but any rapid rise in cases could add additional strain to our still fragile healthcare system.
2/2 I look forward to continuing the important dialogue we’ve started about building a stronger, more equitable and resilient Canadian #PublicHealth system. canada.ca/en/public-heal…
1/2 A big #ThankYou to everyone across Canada who helped inform my #CPHOReport2021. You can read the input from these Canadian #PublicHealth leaders in the What We Heard Report. canada.ca/en/public-heal…
4/4 My hope is that this report will stimulate dialogue and action on the renewal of our public health system. I encourage all Canadians interested in a healthier future to explore it.
3/4 The #COVID19 pandemic has shown how public health reduces the burden on our health care systems, by preventing illness and working to improve the conditions that affect our health.
2/4 #CPHOReport2021 draws on lessons learned from Canada’s pandemic experience and proposes a series of actions to future-proof our #PublicHealth system.
1/4 A strong public health system works to help all people achieve better health. My #CPHOReport2021, A Vision to Transform Canada’s Public Health System, provides a blueprint to strengthen our system. canada.ca/en/public-heal…

1/2 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: this week’s forecast is concerning, but we can take heart that models only show future possibilities so with fast, appropriate action -- we can avoid a worst case scenario trajectory as we have done in the pastcanada.ca/en/public-heal…tI

There may be more bumps ahead this winter, but we are resilient! We’ll get through this like we’ve done before. Get vaccinated and winterize your layers! twitter.com/GurdeepPandher…
#COVID19Vaccines provide excellent protection against severe illness, but with rapidly spreading #DeltaVariant still predominating + other respiratory viruses expected to make a comeback, we need layers of protection. #VaccinesPlus ➡️ canada.ca/en/public-heal…
4/4 Completing a full series of #COVID19Vaccines and getting a #Booster dose as eligible/recommended, PLUS using layers of public health and personal protections, continues to be essential to the pandemic response in Canada. #VaccinesPlus➡️canada.ca/en/public-heal…
3/4 Nevertheless for older adults, being fully vaccinated still provides a clear and significant protection advantage against severe illness, with unvaccinated 16X more likely to be hospitalized with #COVID19 than fully vaccinated people. canada.ca/content/dam/ph…
2/4 Youth & younger adults, have a relatively greater difference in risk rates for unvaccinated (32X↑) vs. fully vaccinated since younger people are at lower overall risk to begin with & have stronger, longer lasting protection from vaccines.
1/4 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: being fully vaccinated continues to provide substantial protection from severe illness due to the Delt#VariantOfConcernrn which is predominating in widespread but highly variable activity across Canada#GetVaxxeded ➡canada.ca/en/public-heal…4l

NEW – For the latest detailed #epidemiology of #COVID19 in Canada with highlights, trends and analysis see #PHAC’s COVID-19 WEEKLY EPIDEMIOLOGY REPORT for Nov 28-Dec 4, 2021 canada.ca/content/dam/ph…
3/3 However, if the Omicron variant were to accelerate and replace Delta as the predominant variant in Canada, it is possible we could have an even more rapidly accelerating resurgence in cases. Abundance of caution needed! #VaccinesPlus➡️ canada.ca/en/public-heal…
2/3 This latest #PHAC-@McMasterU forecast suggests that, even if Delta continues to predominate without replacement by the Omicron variant, resurgence is forecast unless we reduce community-wide transmission by at least 15%. canada.ca/content/dam/ph…
1/3 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: today’s presentation o#PHACAC update#epidemiologygy & modelling analysis, shows the epidemic is in a growth pattern nationally and with current levels of community-wide transmission a resurgence is forecastcanada.ca/en/public-heal…tI
With highly transmissible Delta variant predominating & #Omicron looming, we must maximize layers of protection: full series of #COVID19Vaccines PLUS booster doses as recommended PLUS #WashMaskSpace/#MaskFit, #GoodVentilation, More ➡️canada.ca/en/public-heal…
