About COVID-19 vaccines

New Brunswick's vaccine roll-out

Vaccine supply is distributed by the Government of Canada. New Brunswick receives an allocated number of doses of vaccine on a regular basis. This number has continued to increase since the initial vaccine roll out, and New Brunswick continues to monitor the federal approach to ensure that the rollout of vaccines is aligned with the most up-to-date guidance from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI).

Vaccine safety, development, and approval

Health Canada has a thorough approval process. A vaccine is only approved after an independent and thorough scientific review for safety, effectiveness and quality.

Thanks to worldwide collaboration, COVID-19 vaccines were developed quickly without compromising safety. Approved vaccines have met Health Canada’s strict standards. These vaccines are safe, effective and will save lives.

New Brunswick and the other provinces and territories are also monitoring vaccine safety on an ongoing basis.

In addition to the work being done in Canada, COVID-19 vaccines are being approved through separate but equally rigorous processes in other countries.

How the vaccine works

Vaccines work with your immune system, so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. The COVID-19 vaccine can reduce your risk of developing COVID-19 and make your symptoms milder if you do get it.

Achieving community immunity

The more people in our communities immunized against COVID-19, the harder it is for the virus to spread. This is why widespread vaccination is the best option to help protect you and the people around you, especially those at increased risk for severe illness. Community immunity will save lives. New Brunswick  has sufficient vaccine supply to offer full protection to every eligible New Brunswicker.
