As Ontario residents aged 80 and over wonder when they will receive specific information on how they will get their COVID-19 vaccines, we are learning residents of one Toronto seniors’ apartment building found the shots arriving at their doors on Tuesday.
A pilot program is rolling out over the coming days with the residents of Jack Layton Seniors Housing on Queen Street East the first to get the delivery service.
The program has been given the go-ahead by both Toronto Public Health and the provincial government and is run by three Ontario Health Teams.
The vaccinations will continue over the next few days at two seniors homes, St. Matthew’s Bracondale House St. Clair West and at a Toronto Community Housing building on Bathurst Street, with a goal of reaching about 500 people initially.
