PRIORITIZATION OF CANADIANS WITH LUNG DISEASE IN COVID-19 VACCINATION ROLLOUT: A joint statement

The Canadian Lung Association is proud to collaborate with the CTS Roundtable and its members on a joint Statement on Prioritization of Canadians with Lung Disease in COVID-19 Vaccination Roll-Out.

About the COVID-19 Respiratory Roundtable:

Since the onset of the pandemic, the Canadian Thoracic Society (CTS) has developed numerous position statements to provide clinical guidance for health care professionals (www.cts-sct.ca/covid-19). In April 2020, the CTS convened a pan-Canadian COVID-19 Respiratory Roundtable of professional societies and patient organizations which meets on a bi-weekly basis to exchange information on pandemic-related activities and strategies, align messaging and identify opportunities for collaboration. Members disseminate CTS guidance to their professional constituents and translate these guidelines into
public and patient education materials and programs. This has allowed health care professionals and patients to access the most up to date evidence-based information and medical expertise on issues impacting their lung health.
