Quick Glance

COVID-19 vaccines for Ontario


Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illnesses like covid 19.

Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. This can reduce your risk of developing covid 19 and make your symptoms milder if you do get it.

Our supply will not arrive all at once, so distribution will happen in stages. The goal is for everyone in Ontario to be able to get a covid 19 vaccination if they want one, as soon as enough doses are available from manufacturers.

SOGC Statement on COVID-19 Vaccination in Pregnancy


CMPA Podcast: COVID-19: Reasonable care


A public health emergency may force a shift away from the usual patient-first ethics, to a public-first approach. Such a shift in mindset is difficult for everyone involved. In this podcast, CMPA Physician Advisor Dr. Yolanda Madarnas and CMPA Director of Practice Improvement Dr. Steven Bellemare discuss the stress generated by the sudden need to ration resources and restrict access to certain treatments in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Listen to them discuss the concept of reasonable care and the patient’s best interests to help you make sense of the unusual demands the COVID-19 pandemic may place on you.

NIH - The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel’s Interim Statement on Patient Prioritization for Outpatient MAB When There Are Logistical or Supply Constraints


Last Updated: December 23, 2021

The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel (the Panel) has recommended several therapeutic agents for the treatment and prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection in individuals who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19. These anti-SARS-CoV-2 therapeutics are of greatest benefit for nonhospitalized patients who have risk factors for progression to severe COVID-19. The risks for progression are substantially higher for those who are not vaccinated or who are vaccinated but not expected to mount an adequate immune response to the vaccine.
