COVID-19 variants are a hot topic. Since we’re committed to keeping Canadians updated with the latest information on COVID-19, here’s the scoop!
 
What’s a variant?
Viruses evolve over time as they make copies of themselves. A virus that has one or more changes — a.k.a. mutations — is considered a variant of the original virus.
 
Why are virus variants concerning?
Depending on the kind of mutations, a virus may become easier to spread, or harder to prevent with vaccines. Luckily, Canada’s COVID-19 vaccines are all expected to provide some protection against the variants, and research is ongoing.
