Less than half of TTC workers disclosed their COVID-19 vaccine status – .


TORONTO – Less than half of TTC workers have disclosed their COVID-19 vaccine status a week after the initial deadline to do so.

On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Toronto Transit Commission said on social media that they were “almost 50% of active TTC employees who have provided (their) vaccination status.”

Of those who provided the information, 93 percent received two doses of a vaccine while seven percent received their first injection.

In mid-August, the transportation agency announced that all TTC employees, contractors and students will be required to show proof of vaccination by September 13 and complete mandatory training if they are not vaccinated.

This deadline has now been extended to September 30.

Like workers in the City of Toronto, the TTC is demanding that all staff be fully immunized by October 30.

The city has also had to extend its deadline for notification of immunization status, saying all staff must provide this information by September 30.

On Monday, the city said thousands of workers had yet to complete a disclosure form. However, of the 24,000 who completed the form, 88% are fully vaccinated and 5% are partially vaccinated.
