GNU: Covid-19 Vaccine Update

Press Release

This last year brought unprecedented challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to change many things we took for granted – travelling, embracing our Elders, visiting our friends and family, holding community feasts, even some of our daily routines. We had to make changes to protect our health and the health of our communities.

In the past few months, we have witnessed and lived firsthand how the virus can impact our communities.

Vaccinating Nunavummiut is a vital step on Nunavut’s Path. It is one of the best defences we currently have against COVID-19.

The vaccine is not mandatory. No one will be forced to take the vaccine, and no one will receive the vaccine without consenting first.

The decision is an individual one, but one that will have a direct impact on our communities’ health, on Nunavut’s public health restrictions and on the ways we move forward in the months and year to come.

The Government of Nunavut (GN) will do its part to help Nunavummiut make this important decision by providing all the available information about the vaccine as it becomes available. Vaccine administration and delivery will be based in evidence, science based to protect the health and well-being of all Nunavummiut.
