Letter to the Honourable Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario, regarding local COVID-19 vaccination program progress and achievements

On June 4, 2021, Board of Heath Chair, René Lapierre, sent a letter to the Premier to share details about local vaccination program successes. The letter notes that a key element to Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ success is the tremendous community partnerships upon which the local vaccination program is built. A distinguishing feature of the Ontario Public Health System is its longstanding close ties to local municipalities, First Nations and Indigenous partners, service agencies, schools, businesses, community agencies, clinicians, residents and more. It is thanks to these strong relationships built over years that Public Health Sudbury & Districts can “punch above its weight” and deliver an unprecedented vaccination program to area residents. In addition, the letter included a COVID-19 Vaccine Infographic that summarizes key progress locally.

COVID-19 vaccine bulletin

Public Health is committed to keeping the public updated on the COVID-19 vaccine. To keep our local communities informed, we issue a COVID-19 vaccine bulletin on a periodic basis to provide timely COVID-19 vaccine updates, resources, and information on local planning.

Note: there will be no further revisions to this document at this time. Any changes related to the Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ Vaccine Program will be communicated through news releases and social media.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts has developed the Public Health Sudbury & Districts COVID-19 Vaccination Program Playbook to guide local COVID-19 vaccination efforts. The goal is to achieve a vaccine coverage level of at least 75% of eligible recipients in our service area, within the prescribed timeframe, and respecting provincial direction on vaccine recipient sequencing
