Dr. Theresa Tam warned Canadians that vaccination does not equal immunity from COVID-19 on Saturday night.

Dr. Tam made the remarks during her participation in a "virtual townhall" for the Yukon.

“But it’s not absolute. There’s reduction in your risk of transmission, but it doesn’t necessarily eliminate your risk of transmission,” Tam said.

Tam made sure to note that the danger is greatly reduced with the second dose.

“Some studies have shown that it reduces the amount of virus in the back of your nose. If you sample people, there’s less virus, which means less risk of transmission” Tam said.

The full townhall can be viewed here:

“The groups that transmit the virus the most are actually younger adults, many of whom have to work. They can’t stay at home,” she said.

“It’s important that we protect them, as well as the fact that if they’re protected, we reduce transmission of the virus in the community,” Tam continued.
