Employees who are working in Ontario's hot spots may soon be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine dose at work.
Doug Ford announced on Tuesday that vaccination clinics will be allowed to open on-site at certain employer locations.
These clinics will only be available in hot spots, or at a site where a previous outbreak has occurred or is at risk of occurring. Employers interested in hosting a clinic need to first be approved by local public health.
Once open, these sites will vaccinate any employee over 18 as well as eligible residents of the surrounding community.
"We're opening employer-operated vaccine clinics right at the job sites [...] this is how we are protecting our workers," Ford stated.
