Tuesday, June 1st at 7 pm, MPP Tabuns and Councillor Paula Fletcher are co-hosting a webinar on Zoom titled “Tenants in the Pandemic: June 2021 Check-in”. They will look at rights, responsibilities, and resources for tenants with a great team of panelists from:
Don Valley Community Legal Clinic
CERA (the Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation) and
FMTA (Federated Metro Tenants Association)
The focus will be on “rights, responsibilities and resources” – the pandemic has amplified issues for tenants; they will look at what has changed, what is resources are available, and what can people do to move change. Participants will have the opportunity ask questions and raise concerns. You can register for this on-line event by using this link.
Today, the Province of Ontario announced a plan to accelerate the timeline for second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Starting May 31, individuals aged 80+ will become eligible to book an earlier appointment through the Provincial booking portal. Those aged 70+ will become eligible in the week of June 14. After, the Province will shift to a “first-in, first-out” strategy where eligibility will be determined by the date the first vaccine dose was received.
Groups who are already eligible for second doses at a shortened interval will remain eligible going forward. You can find a breakdown of the planned sequencing in the image below:
The Province has noted that getting an earlier second shot is optional – those who have already booked a date for their second dose can choose to keep their original appointments.
This means that anybody who has registered through the Provincial portal will not lose their appointment, and no individuals will be automatically given an earlier appointment for their second dose. If residents choose to register for an earlier second dose through the Provincial booking portal, their original appointment will be automatically cancelled.
Eligible residents can book a first dose appointment at one of the City’s immunization clinics through the Provincial booking portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-833-943-3900. Residents can also continue booking first dose appointments at hospital and health partner-run vaccine clinics through the VaccineTO booking and registration portal. For more information on second doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, please see the Province’s news release.
As of May 25, over 65% of Toronto residents have received their first dose, with over 2,000,000 vaccines administered in the City.
I hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well.
Here is the latest COVID-19 Vaccine Update from Jaye Robinson including details on eligibility of all residents aged 18 and older to receive a vaccine at one of the City of Toronto’s mass immunization clinics.
Dear Friends and Neighbours,
Starting Tuesday, May 18th (tomorrow) at 8:00am, all Toronto residents aged 18+ – including those turning 18 in 2021 – will be eligible to book their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a City-run immunization clinic.
Eligible residents can book an appointment through the Provincial booking portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-833-943-3900. Residents can also continue booking appointments at hospital and health partner-run vaccine clinics through the VaccineTO booking and registration portal.
To-date, over 1.7 million vaccines have been administered in Toronto and over 60% of adults have received their first dose. At a mobile clinic on Sunday in Ward 15’s very own Thorncliffe Park neighbourhood, our health and community partners led by Michael Garron Hospital administered 10,000 vaccines – a national record for a single-day clinic.
I will continue pushing for the vaccine supply required to maintain this momentum.
