As part of Middlesex-London’s COVID-19 vaccination plan, the health unit plans to set up three more mass vaccination clinics in the area to meet a target of 3,000 vaccinations per day.

In the preliminary press release, the Middlesex-London Health Unit’s plan describes how the health unit and its partners will work towards getting 75 percent of all eligible recipients in the City of London and Middlesex County vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“We will have one location in Middlesex and more than one location in the City of London,” said Dr. Chris Mackie, London Medical Health Officer.

Mackie said there are at least 12 areas currently under consideration, but more work is needed to identify the best.

Part of the rollout is a planning table that meets weekly to coordinate and direct vaccination activities across the southwest region. Representatives of the Middlesex-London Health Unit, Huron Perth Public Health and South West Public Health.

Modeling in Ontario shows that coronavirus cases are declining, but the variant poses a “significant threat”.

The plan has four goals, including achieving 75 percent coverage in the shortest possible time and ensuring prioritized and transparent distribution to minimize death.

The other two goals outlined are clear and consistent education and maintaining public trust.

The first phase of the Ontario government’s vaccine roll-out is focused on high-risk individuals, high-risk health care providers and indigenous peoples.

The plan gives the estimated population size for each phase in the Middlesex London area, with the first phase being an estimated 50,292 people.

The second phase aims to vaccinate an estimated 197,438 people, which does not apply to those in care facilities such as emergency shelters and group homes, as well as other vulnerable populations. A total for the third age group, the remaining persons who are 16 years or older, is not known.

Last week the health unit completed vaccinations for all nursing homes and on Wednesday completed the vaccination of residents in all high-risk retirement homes in the region.

Mackie said when it comes to launching vaccines in the second phase, many things are not yet set in stone, and he hopes health officials will be given some flexibility to deploy the vaccine where it is most needed at the time is needed.

“I know people want to say that certain groups are going to be higher on the priority list, but that’s not what we have control over here – the local level is mostly the way we deliver it, not to whom “, he said.

There is no fixed date on which a second vaccination clinic will open. Mackie said that at the moment this is dictated by vaccine supplies.

Officials insist Canada is still on track for 4 million doses of Pfizer despite planning data through March

The vaccination clinic and Western Fair Agriplex are closed for this week and next, while Canada is suffering from a vaccine shortage, partly due to a production delay at Pfizer’s facility in Europe.

The company is expanding its production capacity in Belgium – a move that it claims would affect the production of the vaccine for a “short period”.

Deliveries were reduced by an average of 50 percent within four weeks between January and February.

Canada will receive 149,000 doses of this vaccine over the next two weeks – a fifth of what was previously promised.

The health unit is asking residents of the area to provide feedback on the plan on their website by February 3rd to help health authorities refine it.
