History was made at a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in East York as it set Canada's record for most doses administered in a single day.
The Thorncliffe Park Community Hub clinic administered 10,470 vaccine doses on Sunday, May 16, Toronto East Health Network (TEHN) announced on Twitter. Michael Garron Hospital shared photos of the clinic on Monday, which even has a live DJ to keep the energy high.
CBC Toronto shared a video capturing the cheers and celebrations that ensued when the clinic reached its 10,000-dose milestone — according to TEHN, the Thorncliffe Park clinic is made up of 108 volunteers, 74 pharmacy staff, 65 vaccinators, 55 registration clerks, and dozens of other team members.
Prime Minister Trudeau tweeted his congratulations to the clinic as well, saying, "This is exactly the kind of determination and teamwork it's going to take to beat this virus. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it happen."
As COVID-19 cases continue to drop, one of the province's top doctors has revealed that Ontario's reopening plan is on the way.
According to CP24, Christine Elliott, minister of health, told reporters on Tuesday that the plan will be coming "very soon."
"We have been working with the chief medical officer of health and the medical experts on a safe and careful reopening of Ontario because the last thing we want is to go into it too quickly and to get into a fourth wave. We have to do everything we can to avoid that so we are working on that and we expect it will be available very soon," Elliott said. "It is sector specific looking at what different types of sectors could perhaps be reopened and what their specific needs and timelines are."
All of Ontario is in a stay-at-home order, which is currently set to end on June 2. Yet, Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, had revealed earlier this month that the order may not be lifted until the province sees below 1,000 new cases a day.
