98% of workers in the city of Toronto have received 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine – Toronto

98 percent of the city’s employees in Toronto have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, city officials said Monday.

Ninety-nine percent of employees reported a total of their vaccine status.

Employees should have received a full COVID-19 vaccine course (either a two-dose single-dose or a single-dose vaccine) and notify the municipality by October 30, according to its Covid-19 mandatory vaccination policy.

Fewer than 1,300 employees (408 workers who reported being unvaccinated, 356 who responded but chose not to disclose their status, and 533 have not yet responded to the survey) now remain under impending unpaid suspension or dismissal.

The next step is for managers and supervisors to meet with non-compliant staff to review their COVID-19 vaccine status. The incompatible employee risks up to six weeks in an unpaid suspension.

From Dec. 13, staff members who do not provide evidence of full immunization will be fired for any reason, “as they will have chosen not to comply with the mandatory vaccination policy,” the city said Monday.

“This policy is about protecting the health and safety of all city employees, their families and our residents. We have seen continued progress in vaccinating our staff over the past three months,” said Mayor John Tory.

“It is my hope that staff who have not yet been vaccinated will take the important step as soon as possible.”
