“We’re going to have to manage this pandemic certainly over the next year, but certainly it may be planning for the longer term on the next two to three years during which the vaccine may play a role,” said Tam, whose comments come as new polling suggests some are wary of the potential shot.

Howard Njoo, deputy chief public health officer, offered similar words of caution.

“All of the measures we’ve put in place now will still have to continue with the new reality for quite some time.”
