Community groups will help organize vaccine clinics for residents aged 18 and older in high risk settings within Ontario hot spots.
Premier Doug Ford says this will include faith-based organizations, employers and other community groups.
“We’re protecting those most at risk in 114 highly impacted neighbourhoods across the province, this pop up clinic will begin vaccinating local residents starting Wednesday, community outreach will be lead by the best people for the job.”
Mobile teams and pop-up clinics will be used to vaccinate residents in those places and the government says individuals can contact their local health units for details.
The hot-spot plan will first take effect in certain postal codes in Toronto and Peel Region.
Ontario also says education workers who work or live in hot-spot postal codes in Toronto and Peel will be given an eligibility letter from their local school board to access a shot and make appointments through the provincial portal starting today.
