The Federal government has just announced the approval of COVID-19 vaccines for youth between the ages of 5 and 11. Scouts Canada has previously announced we expect to extend our vaccine mandate for all persons consistent with Federal guidance.
Due to this most recent announcement, we will be reviewing the guidance and adapting our policies accordingly.
We anticipate there will be an implementation period but as of now, there is no immediate change to our policy; youth 5-11 can continue to participate in Scouting activities in-person. Once we have more details we will communicate timelines, including aiming to provide a reasonable approach to allow for ample time for scheduling two doses. More updates will be available in the coming weeks.
Scouts Canada has consistently used guiding principles to shape our response and requirements. We continue to support the federal government and associated health authorities that widespread vaccine coverage is our best way to end the pandemic.
We have also updated the Covid Vaccine FAQs on our website to include this latest development.
