Does the Emergency Medical Care benefit cover the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine while on a trip?

Emergency Medical Care insurance covers urgent care necessary to stabilize a medical condition following an accident or sudden illness. If such care is required during your trip due to side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine, you will be covered as long as you meet the pre-existing conditions requirements.

If you are concerned about the possible side effects, we urge you to consult health authority recommendations or to discuss them with your healthcare professional prior to receiving the vaccine.
