Doug Ford Answers Mayor Bigger’s Call For Vaccines, As Rollout Begins

It was a good day in Sudbury as the first of many have started receiving the Moderna vaccine for COVID-19. Mayor of Greater Sudbury Brian Bigger quoted a tweet from Public Health Sudbury and Districts proclaiming that he is thankful the first vaccines have arrived in Sudbury. 

Bigger also stated how he was relieved that the provincial rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine has now turned to include Greater Sudbury. The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine has mostly been in the southern areas of the province, but when Greater Sudbury mayor put the personal call into Ontario Premier Doug Ford, he answered. 

Sudbury schools are starting to get hit hard by the virus with outbreaks after the Christmas break have been declared in a number of schools. The city has also seen the death count climb from 2 to 7 as the virus has made its way into retirement home Amberwood Suites among other long term care homes in the city.
