COVID-19 Vaccine Education

On August 17, 2021, the Ontario Government released a vaccination directive requiring hospitals in Ontario to have COVID-19 vaccination policies in place for individuals who are working on or who in any way access any hospital site.

On August 25, 2021, the CCH Board of Directors approved a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for all staff, physicians, contractors, learners and volunteers to keep our staff, physicians and patients safe.

Part of this directive outlined the need for an educational session approved by the covered organization about the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination for individuals who are not fully vaccinated throughout the transition period. Click here to access the education (version française à venir).

Read an open letter to the community from more than 75 local physicians on the importance of getting vaccinated.
