Measures Include:

  • $115 million in additional funding for vaccine research.
  • $662 million for clinical vaccine trials in Canada.
  • $350 million to expand national testing and modeling of COVID-19.
  • Creation of the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force, led by Dr. David Naylor, Dr. Catherine Hankins, Dr. Tim Evans, Dr. Theresa Tam, and Dr. Mona Nemer to study issues such as testing, serology, and immunity.
