Toronto and Region of Peel Reach COVID-19 Vaccine Milestones – fr


TORONTO – Toronto and the Region of Peel have both reached new milestones for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Toronto Mayor John Tory announced on Wednesday that the city had administered more than two million doses of COVID-19 vaccines.

To date, 2,010,103 gun shots have been administered in the city.

Toronto is the first public health unit in Canada to administer more than two million doses.

“Thank you to all of the Toronto team who worked tirelessly to reach this milestone. Let’s keep it up, Toronto, ”Tory tweeted Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, the city confirmed that more than 65% of eligible adults received at least their first dose of the vaccine, a week ahead of the province’s target.

Meanwhile, the Region of Peel’s medical officer of health announced today that the region has surpassed one million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday.

Dr Lawrence Loh also said the region is quickly approaching another milestone in its vaccination efforts.

“Today, we are rapidly approaching 70% of first dose coverage for the population 18 years and older. I expect this milestone to be confirmed today or in the days to come. And that also includes 75% first dose coverage for people aged 50 and over, and more than half of our 18 to 49 year olds with first doses, ”Loh said at a press conference at Brampton.

As vaccinations ramp up in Peel, Loh is urging all residents who have not received their first injection to make an appointment.

“… If you have not yet received your first dose, please visit peelregion.ca/COVID-19vaccine for all of our offers and to book today. For those of you who received your first dose, thank you and please stand by for more information on how to get your second injection. “

As of Tuesday evening, more than 8.2 million doses of vaccine had been administered in the province since mid-December.

More than 544,288 people in Ontario have been fully immunized. Two doses of approved vaccines administered in the province are required for complete immunization.
