All physicians at Thornhill Medical Centre wish for their patients to have the first COVID vaccine they are eligible for.
All COVID vaccines are extremely effective at reducing the rate of death, ICU admission/hospitalization and serious disease. The best vaccine for you is the one you can get first, for the earliest protection.
It takes up to 4 weeks for your body to build up protection after vaccination.
