The COVID-19 Vaccine Implementation Committee for Sudbury East, a committee comprised of key community partners and the municipalities of Sudbury East, and led by Public Health Sudbury & Districts, is proud to announce that the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the Sudbury East area. As the vaccine begins to rollout, some of the highest priority health care workers, who have been diligently working the front lines throughout the pandemic, were among the first to receive the vaccine in Sudbury East area.
The COVID-19 vaccine is an important tool to help keep our health care workers safe as they continue to provide essential services throughout the pandemic. The vaccine is safe and effective and will continue to be rolled out across our communities.
Once all reasonable steps were taken to administer the first-dose vaccinations to staff, essential caregivers and residents of long-term care homes, high-risk retirement homes, and First Nations Elder care homes across Ontario, the first dose of the vaccine started to be made available to the remainder of the phase one population. This includes:
- adults 80 years of age and older
- staff, residents, and caregivers in retirement homes and other congregate care settings for seniors (for example, assisted living)
- health care workers in the Highest priority level followed by Very High and then High priority in accordance with the Ministry of Health’s guidance on Health Care Worker Prioritization
- all Indigenous adults
- adult recipients of chronic home care
This means that in the coming weeks, Sudbury East will continue to receive amounts of vaccine for the groups listed above, as available, and all dates and times for future immunization clinics will be provided directly to eligible individuals when details are known. Through extensive planning and to best meet the needs of the communities of Sudbury East, the COVID-19 Vaccine Implementation Committee has selected locations that will be used to host community-based mass immunization clinics. The committee is excited to announce that the St.-Charles Community Centre and the Alban Community Centre will be locations used for vaccine clinics throughout the local COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
The COVID-19 Vaccine Implementation Committee for Sudbury East continues to work together to ensure the needs of the community are met, and to address the challenges of stringent vaccine storage and handling guidelines. Clinics will be available in the Sudbury East area so please prepare to attend one of these area clinics and limit travel as is currently recommended. We are committed to ensuring support is available for appointment scheduling, travel-related challenges, and to support information needs as available.
Over time, every eligible individual living throughout the Public Health Sudbury & Districts catchment area, including Sudbury East, will have access to the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines. We are all committed and hopeful to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic!
On behalf of Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ COVID-19 Vaccine Implementation Committee for Sudbury East, we appreciate everyone’s patience as we rollout this unprecedented COVID-19 immunization program.
