COVID-19 Vaccines: One Step Closer

One Step Closer to My Son Meeting his Great Grandma.


What will you be One Step Closer to?

Every time someone gets a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, we all become one step closer to being with family and friends, seeing new and familiar places, and doing activities we enjoyed before the pandemic - and being able to do them without any restrictions. That glorious day will come, but we must continue working together (while apart) by following public health measures and getting fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible. It's been a long ride and we're all tired; but, we're almost there!

À chaque fois que quelqu’un reçoit une dose du vaccin contre la COVID-19, on s’approche tous et toutes d’être avec notre famille et nos amis, de voir de nouveaux endroits et des endroits familiers ainsi que de faire des activités d’avant la pandémie – et ce sans restrictions. Ce jour viendra, mais nous devons travailler ensemble pour suivre les mesures de santé publique et en se faisant vacciner contre la COVID-19 le plus rapidement possible. Le trajet a été long et nous sommes tous et toutes fatigués mais nous y sommes presque!

How Close Are We...


More than 70 per cent of residents in our Health Unit district have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more about the doses received in our district by clicking on the Vaccinations tab in the COVID-19 Status Report. 

Vaccine Strategy Playbook

The Health Unit has put together a Vaccine Strategy Playbook to assist in guiding the planning and rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines. This document serves a framework on which to build our vaccination plans in our district; however, it is not static and will be continuously updated as changes are made by the Ministry of Health to the priority groups, changes in vaccine supply, and the number of individuals included in each group.

In Ontario, the Roadmap to Reopen outlines three steps, in which public health measures will gradually be relaxed. In order to get to each step in reopening, a certain percentage of Ontarians must receive their first dose, and another percentage must have their second dose. The province must also see positive trends in other key public health and health system indicators (ie. lower daily case numbers, less strain on hospital capacity). Ontario is currently in Step 2.

 To get beyond Step 3 of the Roadmap, more Ontarians will need to have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
