Sudbury Will Not Be Next In Line For COVID-19 Vaccine

Sudbury COVID-19 Vaccine

The Ontario Government announced today that the Federal government will be supplying them with an additional 90,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. These additional Pfizer vaccines will come within the next 2 weeks and will be given out to select hospitals across the province.

The Doug Ford lead Ontario Government has decided that they will be giving out the vaccine to regions in the province with the highest rates of COVID-19 infection. This would leave Greater Sudbury behind for this round of the COVID-19 vaccine as the area is managing the virus strongly compared to other regions across the province.

The province will roll out the vaccine to an additional 17 hospitals across Ontario and among them will be Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. Thunder Bay which has a much higher rate of COVID-19 infection has had a total of 483 cases with 109 active cases and a total of 14 deaths. The Northern Ontario city also has had 14 people die of the disease since it started.

These will be the next spots in Ontario that get the Pfizer Vaccine:

Windsor Regional Hospital

London Health Sciences Centre

Grand River Hospital

Halton Healthcare

Hamilton Health Sciences

William Osler Health System

Trillium Health Partners

Southlake Regional Health Centre

Mackenzie Health

Humber River Hospital

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre

Michael Garron Hospital

Unity Health Toronto

Scarborough Health Network

Lakeridge Health

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre

“This expanded distribution list is fantastic news and allows us to continue to test and refine our vaccination rollout plan,” said General Rick Hillier.

“This is the next important step that gets us ready for all of Ontario in 2021.”

Even though Sudbury is being responsible with the health measures we hope that we will not be punished because of it. No one has said anything about when Sudbury will receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
