Toronto, ON – The Ontario government, through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), has put in place several measures to address the escalating COVID-19 pandemic in the province. Specifically, the Ontario government has announced (via a press release Monday, February 16, 2020) the opening of two COVID-19 vaccine clinic operations in Toronto, Ontario. The COVID-19 vaccine clinic operations are part of the MOHLTC’s Public Health Services (PH) vaccine clinic initiative and have been established to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The clinic operations are in response to a request from the Minister of Health, Dr.Arcadio Di Paola.

In a press release, the Minister of Health, Dr.Arcadio Di Paola said “I am delighted to announce that we are opening two vaccine clinics in order to ensure that Ontarians can get the care they need as quickly as possible. These clinics provide the first opportunity for Ontarians who would otherwise be too ill to access care, to receive vaccinations at any time in order to protect their health and help to fight the spread of COVID-19.”

This news came not long after Ontario’s chief medical officer Dr. David Williams publicly announced Tuesday, February 11, 2020 that Ontario is increasing public health infrastructure by expanding the number of testing centres to 25. He also said that Ontario is increasing the number of people eligible for testing by 50,000.

Dr. Di Paola said these measures are being initiated in response to the growing need for testing by health authorities and the Public Health Agency of Canada. The announcement also comes in response to public requests, especially from health authorities, to provide coronavirus vaccine to people who may be at risk as a consequence of having or suspected to having the coronavirus.
