The Ford government’s announced it’ll be distributing more doses of the Pfizer vaccine to 17 additional hospitals over the next two weeks; most in COVID-19 hot spots.
This is initial phase of the province’s three-phase plan that began earlier this week a Toronto’s University Health Network and The Ottawa Hospital.
Ontario’s expecting to receive up to 90,000 doses before the end of the month to continue vaccinating health care workers and essential caregivers in hospitals, long-term care and other congregate settings caring for seniors.
The following hospitals will be receiving the vaccine:
Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
Scarborough Health Network
Toronto East Health Network
Unity Health Toronto
Humber River Hospital
Southlake Regional Health Centre
Trillium Health Partners
William Osler Health System
Hamilton Health Sciences
Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre
Grand River Hospital
London Health Sciences Centre
Windsor Regional Hospital
Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre
Early next year, more hospitals will be administering the Pfizer vaccine to health care workers, as well as essential caregivers, and long-term care and retirement home residents.
