Quick Launch

COVID-19 Vaccines for Health Care Professionals

​​COVID-19 vaccination in our communities will be a joint effort requiring input from many partners. The roll-out of the vaccine in our area will be implemented according to Ministry of Health’s vaccine distribution plan. This page will be updated regularly as information and resources are made available.

Current Status

Public health is working with local health care providers to vaccinate residents, staff and essential care givers in long term care homes and Elder care homes. In additon highest and very high health care workers have begun being vaccinated. The next population to be vaccinated is those aged 80+, and we expect to start booking appointments in mid March. We encourage HCP to have conversations now with patients who require it so they are ready to get the vaccine when it is available to them. 

To support vaccination planning, we have established local planning groups that cover each of the regions in our area. These groups meet weekly and are comprised mainly of health care providers due to the initial focus on long term care homes and because health care workers are a priority population after that. We expect to broaden our planning to include other partners as we enter new phases of the roll-out plan and begin planning mass immunization clinics over time.
