Ontario expands vaccine access to education workers, 18+ adults in high-risk neighbourhoods in Toronto
Dear community members,
The Ontario government has announced that they will be expanding the current eligibility criteria for vaccine access in Toronto and Peel region. Starting April 12, education workers across the province who provide daily support to students with special education needs would now be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. It was also announced that all education workers in high-risk neighbourhoods in Toronto and Peel Region will be able to get their vaccine.
The provincial government has also announced that they are working to vaccinate adults 18+ in high risk neighbourhoods across Ontario which have seen the highest transmission rates of the COVID-19 virus, in the coming weeks; no date has been announced yet. Below is the list of postal codes and neighbourhoods that fall under the list of ‘Hot Spots Communities’.
You will notice that SAWRO’s postal code: M1L and several surrounding communities have been identified as a hotspot region with one of the highest virus transmission rates. We continue to advice our community to follow the guidance of public health officials to follow health guidelines of staying home as much as possible, properly wearing a mask in public, and maintaining hygiene etiquette to protect yourself and others in the community. We must all work together to limit the spread of the virus in our communities!
