On November 29, 2021 I hosted a virtual Kids' Vaccine Town Hall to help answer your questions and concerns about the vaccine for kids ages 5-11. I was joined by Dr. Janine McCready, Infectious Diseases Physician at Michael Garron Hospital, and Councillor Joe Cressy, Chair of the Toronto Board of Health.
I know how important your children's health and well-being are, and that some of you may need more information before booking an appointment.
Dr. McCready provided a very informative presentation and we answered many of your questions.
If you missed it, here is the recording:
