Posts falsely interpret Ontario Covid-19 vaccine guidance

More than 80 percent of Canadians have been vaccinated against Covid-19, but social media posts claim that Canada will mandate psychiatric medication for people refusing the jab. This is false; the posts misinterprets guidance from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) that encourages physicians to discuss medication or therapy with patients who display anxious and avoidant behaviors -- including debilitating fear of needles -- rather than exempting them from vaccination.
