Over the past 50 years, immunizations have saved more lives in Canada than any other health intervention. Ongoing COVID-19 health concerns and recent Measles outbreaks remind us almost daily about the importance of these vaccines, particularly for our most vulnerable. Zoomer Radio’s Liz West sits down with pre-eminent Canadian immunologist Dr. Dawn Bowdish to discuss why COVID-19 is an ongoing health concern and what the updates are for spring, and to explore whether older Canadians should be getting re-immunized against Measles, among other topics in this 45-minute program.
