Omicron Variant anxiety

With the Omicron variant circulating, we are very concerned about the spread of COVID-19. Many of us are feeling scared, confused and worried.


What do we do with all the anxiety and fear we are feeling right now? We know that people who have had two vaccines continue to be quite protected from very severe symptoms. We also know that there are other actions we can take to minimize our risk.  

  • In the latest H-CARDD blog, Dr. Yona Lunsky shares five  important actions we can take to stay safe right now. Read the Blog Post here.
  • We also have a new Easy Read pamphlet about the third vaccine shot and how to go about booking an appointment. Find the Easy Read here.
