Health Canada warned Canadians Not to Buy Coronavirus Vaccines Off the internet

Health Canada is warning Canadians to be wary of potentially counterfeit coronavirus vaccines found on the internet or for sale from “unauthorized sources.”

Health Canada issued the statement Thursday, warning that any counterfeit vaccines could pose “serious health risks.”

“Do not buy COVID-19 vaccines online or from unauthorized sources,” the statement read. “The only way to access safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines is through clinics organized or endorsed by your local public health authority in collaboration with Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial governments.”

Governments across Canada have pledged to make vaccines free for everyone so people should not have to buy access to any of the approved vaccinations. Health Canada added that Canadians can only access the vaccine at clinics “organized or endorsed by your local public health authority.”

Canada approved its first coronavirus vaccine — the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccine — on Dec. 9 and vaccinations have started at hospitals and clinics around the country for select groups of the most vulnerable Canadians.
