#MandatoryVaccination 

RNAO is calling for the Ontario government to mandate COVID-19 vaccination for all health-care workers. To increase vaccination rates, the provincial government must make it easier and faster for health-care workers to get fully vaccinated by:

  • bringing vaccinations to workplaces
  • providing an additional two paid sick days for workers to be vaccinated
Letter to Ontario government 

On July 20, 2021, RNAO sent an open letter to Ontario’s premier regarding the importance of mandatory vaccination for all health-care workers. We drew on the research of experts to identify the issues and challenges, and to pave the way forward.

3 Mandatory Asks

With a fourth wave of COVID-19 already raging, it is paramount that the Ontario and federal governments take swift and decisive action. RNAO argues the way forward to keep the pandemic in check and protect vulnerable populations is for Premier Ford to adopt the 3 Mandatory Asks:

  •   #MandatoryVaccination for health-care workers (unless medical exemption)
  •   #MandatoryVaccination for teachers and educational staff (unless medical exemption)
  •   Mandatory #VaccinePassports for everyone (unless medical exemption)
