Canadian Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos recently stated that the meaning of being “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 makes “no sense,” clarifying that individuals ought to take the jabs every 9 months, according to reports.
“9 months is very clear and will help people understand why ‘up to date’ is the right way to think about vaccination now,” said Duclos to a group of reporters. “‘Fully vaccinated’ makes no sense now. It’s about ‘up to date.’ So am I up to date in my vaccination? Have I received a vaccination in the last 9 months?”
Dulcos in January argued that vaccines should be mandatory in Canada if COVID began to surge again in the Fall. “We must continue to fight against Covid,” he said.
“What we see now is that our health care system in Canada is fragile, our people are tired, and the only way that we know to get through COVID-19, this variant and any future variant, is through vaccination,” Duclos said.
Valiant News recently reported in June that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that he has been infected with COVID-19 despite being vaccinated against the virus at least four times.
The news marked the second time the Canadian leader has caught the coronavirus despite receiving scores of COVID-19 vaccine injections, which he credits for making him “feel okay.”
“I’ve tested positive for COVID-19. I’ll be following public health guidelines and isolating,” the Canadian PM announced in a tweet. “I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots,” he added. “So, if you haven’t get vaccinated – and if you can, get boosted. Let’s protect our healthcare system, each other, and ourselves.”

The timing of Trudeau’s January COVID infection was scrutinized due to the anti-mandate trucker convoy that made its way into Canada’s capital city of Ottawa.
While in isolation, Trudeau enacted the controversial Emergencies Act to quell the protests. Some hailed the move as a violation of civil rights and authorities are currently investigating his use of the emergency law.
