Ontario Is Changing Its Vaccination Rollout Plan Because Of Pfizer Delays

27 Janvier, 2021, 02:37 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

About 47,000 residents of Ontario long-term care homes have already received the first dose of the vaccine with another 17,000 or 18,000 who still have not received the vaccine.

The province is still planning to administer first doses to residents in all long-term care homes across the province by Feb. 5, depending on delivery dates of the vaccine in the first week of February.

Provincial officials say they plan to administer first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to all long-term care home residents in Ontario 10 days sooner than planned as at least one facility in outbreak has reported multiple cases of the United Kingdom variant.

Doug Ford announced on Monday that Ontario's vaccine rollout plan is being changed slightly due to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine's shipment delays.

Sanofi will fill and pack millions of doses of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine from July in an effort to help meet the huge demand for the USA drugmaker's shots.

The province said deliveries of the Moderna vaccine remain on track and about 80,000 doses are expected the week of February 1 but allocations beyond that date haven't been firmed up.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath called on the government to give the first vaccine shot to all long-term care residents by Friday.

"We acted quickly to protect our seniors, our most vulnerable populations, and those who care for them".

Initially the province's vaccine task force said its goal was to provide first doses of the vaccine to those vulnerable groups by February 15 but officials now say they are working to do that 10 days sooner than planned.

In early January, the City confirmed that immunization clinics were held at 87 of Toronto's long-term care homes.

Vaccinations in remote northern and First Nation communities will continue.

After facing pressure and backlash from opposing governments, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla by phone last week as the delayed doses force provinces to cancel vaccination appointments and reconsider timing for second doses.

To date, a COVID-19 vaccine has been made available to 50,000 long-term care workers and another 50,000 workers have yet to receive their first doses.

Despite the one-week delay from Pfizer, the company has stated it will live up to the contractual obligation to provide Canada with a total of four million doses of vaccine by the end of March, the briefing was told.

Ford reiterated that on Monday, saying, "It is our hope that by the summer, anyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get [one]".

In areas of Ontario where students returned to the classroom Monday, the province has introduced additional measures to control the spread of COVID-19 including targeted asymptomatic testing, more vigorous screening, mandatory masks for students in grades 1 to 3, and mandatory masks outdoors when physical distancing can't be maintained.
