Why it’s important

We are asking you to share, on your social media channel, your reason for getting vaccinated. Sharing your vaccination story can increase vaccine confidence amongst people in Canada. As more people get vaccinated, our communities become safer and we can all get back to the people, places and things we miss.

Tips for posting

  • When: you can do it any time (pre or post vaccination)
  • Format: text or video
  • Platform: use your favourite social media platform
  • Challenge: ask your community to share their “why”


  • “I’m getting vaccinated so I can have awkward elevator small talk again.”
  • “I got the COVID-19 vaccine just so I can hug Oma again.”
