Low barrier, mobile and pop-up clinics

Mobile and targeted pop-up clinics are underway in the community, and in partnership with community organizations, are focusing on people in our community who are at-risk and otherwise unlikely to go to the city's mass vaccination clinics. Sometimes, these clinics are invite-only and are not widely advertised beyond the target population they are trying to reach at this time. Often, depending on turn out, these clinics expand eligibility to more people.

The Ontario Health Team, along with hospital partners and local agencies are currently working through second doses in targeted clinics where they have already been, as well as by high-risk postal-code, according to the City's Sprint Strategy. The postal codes are a subset of the province's list of 114 hot-spot postal codes. Four Davenport postal codes are on the provincial hot-spot list, but not all of them are part of the City's Sprint Strategy. 

My team compiles information we find on pop-ups open to Davenport residents at: www.maritstiles.ca/pop-ups and have submitted ideas and suggestions for locations and target groups in the community. Volunteers from my office have also been helping to spread the word by flyering neighbourhoods near pop-up clinics and phoning residents. Want to help with this work?

Throughout the vaccine roll out, I have called on the provincial government to allocate more of the vaccine supply to at-risk communities, so that we can move faster to vaccinate everyone in those areas.

Letter to Health Minister: Davenport needs more vaccine options

On May 10, I wrote the Minister of Health to again call for support to expand opportunities for vaccination in Davenport's hot-spot postal codes. Read the letter here.

Davenport Vaccine Town Halls 

In an effort to inform our community about the vaccine rollout, I have hosted 3 online community meetings with Ward 9 Councillor Ana Bailao and public health officials including Dr. Eileen De Villa, including one in Portuguese. 

Portuguese-language vaccine information:

Davenport has the largest number of Portuguese-speaking residents anywhere in Canada. Many of you have asked for information to share with Portuguese-speaking neighbours and family. Toronto Public Health has provided us with links to resources, below. In addition the city is funding community organizations to hire 250 Ambassadors to work with their local communities to increase vaccine confidence and access to them. 

The provincial booking hotline provides support in 300 languages.
