Restrictions and vaccinations will see us through COVID-19 safely

The Institute for Health Economics (IHE) CEO co-authored an opinion editorial appearing in the Edmonton Journal with Timothy Caulfield, Dr. James Talbot and Dr. Noel Gibney. In it Dr. McCabe and fellow authors provide a critique of a previous editorial, appearing on February 8th, by Dr. Ari R. Joffe and Mr. David Redman.

The concluding message of the editorial is: “Going forward, we believe that timely effective public health measures combined with a comprehensive vaccination program is the way we can return to a more normal life in which all Albertans can, without fear, enjoy the company of friends, neighbours and loved ones again.”
