COVID-19 described video: Boost your defences by staying up to date on your vaccination



The following is a live-action video, which depicts a fictitious game of street hockey.

A middle-aged man dressed as a goaltender stands in front of a hockey net on a residential street. He removes his helmet and it drops to the pavement.

Narrator: COVID-19 vaccines got us back in the game.

He looks concerned as three street hockey players skate toward him.

Narrator: But Omicron changed the rules.

The opposing players are wearing jerseys emblazoned with a symbol for the Omicron strain of COVID-19. COVID-19 is also written on the back of their jerseys.

The goaltender's concern grows as one of the opponents shoots the puck. The puck stops, frozen in mid air, as does the opposing team. The goaltender is the only person not frozen in time.

The goaltender skates up to one of his now-frozen opponents as if to confirm what he is seeing.

Narrator: Now it's important to maintain protection...

The goaltender skates back to his place in front of the net where the puck still frozen in mid-air, and puts his helmet back on.

Narrator: ...because, as we all know, the game is not over.

Time unfreezes, the game resumes and the puck continues it trajectory and hits the goaltender's face mask, and lands in a puddle on the pavement.

There is text on the puck, which says: Boost your defences

Narrator: Keep up to date on your vaccination to stay in the game.
