There's no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has had dramatic impact on many facets of our lives over the last 18 months. To bring this pandemic to an end, a large share of the world needs to be immune to the virus that causes COVID-19.
The safest way to achieve this is a vaccine. Vaccines are a technology that humanity has often relied on to bring down the death toll of infectious diseases. The COVID-19 vaccine is a crucial step people can take to protect themselves, their friends, families and colleagues.
This site is to help you understand the COVID-19 vaccinations available, locations and a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to help you make informed decisions around vaccination. We’ve compiled the information for you.
