A Message from Dr. Samir Gupta - Which COVID-19 Vaccine is Better?
February 12, 2021
While we await word from our provincial and municipal governments on the roll out of vaccinations available to CLNH staff and residents we want to make sure that you have the latest information regarding them. While it’s not mandatory to get the vaccine, we have listed some resources below on the current process of receiving it and potential side effects. We are also encouraging everyone to speak to their family doctor for any recommendations or other medical information needed regarding receiving it.
Listed below is the current screening and consent form from the Ministry of Health and must be completed, signed and submitted before the vaccine is administered. While it might change, it’s a helpful tool right now to review the possible information needed.
We will be speaking with family members and substitute decision makers of the residents we support who receive 24hr support to ensure open communication in their requests regarding their loved ones potential vaccination as well as working together to get the form completed.
To find out more please visit the following link for the latest from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care regarding relevant vaccination information and planning resources
What is Sleeves up Ontario? #SleevesUpOn is a campaign created by our developmental services partners Community Living Toronto about people receiving the vaccine and we encourage you to check it out by typing the #SleevesUpOn in your social media accounts or search bar for more information.
