Life-Insurance Rumours regarding COVID-19

Rumours have been spreading online that getting the COVID-19 vaccine will affect your coverage for health and life insurance. Rest assured, these statements are false.

The COVID-19 vaccine has been deemed safe by Health Canada, and provincial and federal health authorities are closely monitoring the vaccine roll-out to ensure the continued safety of all Canadians.

Receiving the vaccine will not affect your premiums or your ability to qualify for future coverage through ARTA. Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19, and we support all members who make the decision to receive the vaccine. If you have health concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to speak with your doctor before coming to any final decisions.
