Immunization of Workers for COVID-19 Policy

Last week, we announced our policy on the immunization of workers for COVID-19.

As you know, immunization is the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and outbreaks in AHS facilities, as well as protecting our patients, visitors, and each other.

We have consulted with unions and other stakeholders to finalize the policy, which allows us to strengthen work we’ve done throughout the pandemic to keep hospitals and healthcare facilities safe.

I received several questions from you this week about the policy, so I’ve invited three guests to this week’s vlog to help me answer them.

  • Dr. Mircea Fagarasanu, Senior Program Director, Workplace Health and Safety
  • Dr. Braden Manns, Associate Chief Medical Officer
  • Dr. Stephen Tsekrekos, Medical Director, Workplace Health & Safety

You can book your COVID-19 immunization appointment through ahs.ca/vaccine. More information will be shared in the coming days with the release of the final policy and FAQ. If you have questions or concerns about the policy in the meantime, please email AHSVaccineTaskforce@ahs.ca.
