COVID-19 Vaccine Update from Jaye Robinson May 28

Here is the latest COVID-19 Vaccine Update from Jaye Robinson:

Dear Friends and Neighbours,

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. 

Warm regards,

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.
 
Sincerely,

Thorncliffe Park COVID-19 Pop-up Vaccine Clinic – May 13

Latest Update from Jaye Robinson:

Dear Friends and Neighbours,

Tomorrow (Thursday, May 13) at 12:00pm, our community and hospital partners are holding a COVID-19 vaccine pop-up clinic in celebration of Eid al-Fitr for residents aged 18+ from any hot spot postal code in Toronto – priority access will be given to those with an M3C or M4H postal code. Right now, every single Thorncliffe Park resident aged 18 and older is eligible to receive a vaccine. 

The event will be located at the Thorncliffe Park Community Hub Clinic in the East York Town Centre (45 Overlea Boulevard) and will feature raffle prizes and treats for children.

Vaccines will be administered while supplies last and proof of address – such as a driver’s license or utility bill – is required. I have been advised that there will be more than 3,000 doses available. Residents with questions about the pop-up clinic are encouraged to call the community hotline at 647-477-1640

Thank you to Michael Garron Hospital, The Neighbourhood Organization (TNO), Health Access Thorncliffe Park, East Toronto Health Partners, and the Flemingdon Health Centre for organizing a safe and engaging way for our communities to get vaccinated and celebrate Eid al-Fitr during this challenging time.

Please feel welcome to share this information with your neighbours. If any of them are interested in receiving future updates from my office, they can send an email to councillor_robinson@toronto.ca to be added to my mailing list.

Stay safe and well.

Sincerely,

Dear Friends and Neighbours,

With vaccine supply steadily increasing, the Provincial government has announced several important eligibility updates.

Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, May 11) at 8:00am, individuals with “at-risk” health conditions and those who fall under the Province’s “Group Two” category of people who cannot work from home will become eligible to book an appointment for their first dose of the vaccine at a City-run immunization clinic.

On Thursday, May 13 at 8:00am, individuals turning 40 and older in 2021 will also become eligible to book an appointment for their first dose of the vaccine at a City-run immunization clinic. The age of eligibility in hot spot postal codes identified by the Province remains 18+. All appointments at City-run clinics can be booked through the Provincial booking portal.

Over the weekend, the Province announced that select pharmacy locations in Toronto and Peel are now offering first doses of the Pfizer vaccine to all residents aged 18+, regardless of their postal code. A broader selection of pharmacies continue to offer the AstraZeneca vaccine to all residents aged 40 and older. You can find more information about participating pharmacies on the Province’s website.

To-date, almost 1.5 million vaccines have been administered in Toronto and approximately 50% of adults have received their first dose. The Province anticipates that eligibility will continue to expand throughout the month.
