The decision to close COVID-19 vaccine clinics over Christmas was wrong.
So admits the head of the provincial vaccination task force.
”We’ve heard the voices of the people of Ontario saying ‘get on with this’ and that’s what we are going to do,” says retired General Rick Hillier.
”We will no take any more days off.”
Hillier says over 14,000 have received their first dose of the Pfizer shot as of this morning.
The province is expecting to receive the Moderna vaccine Wednesday with immunizations in nursing homes to begin soon after.
Roughly 50,000 doses are to be delivered to four sites, then redistributed to long-term care and retirement homes with immunizations expected to begin within 48 to 72-hours of their arrival.
Hillier also says he’s asked Health Canada to look into whether the Moderna vaccine could be used as a single dose rather than two.
