McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

This is a McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update for Wednesday, August 18, 2021.  

Yesterday, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health announced that the province will be offering third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to those at highest-risk, providing them with an extra layer of protection against the Delta variant. Eligible groups include residents of high-risk congregate settings, including long-term care homes.

We are anticipating more details about the timing and delivery of third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for our residents in the coming days.  As soon as we have this information, an update will be provided as we will need to obtain consent prior to the administration.  At this time we have no other details.

As COVID-19 cases continue to fluctuate in the province and our local community, please ensure you continue to follow all public health measures, such as masking, hand hygiene, social distancing and limiting interactions if feeling unwell.  Our goal continues to keep each other safe.

Have a great day!
