Ontario announces second COVID-19 dose vaccination for high-risk health-care workers

After much advocacy from RNAO and the nursing community followed by a media release on May 7 calling on the government to urgently fully vaccinate nurses against COVID-19,  the government announced on May 10 that high-risk health-care workers are eligible to receive a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a shortened interval. Eligibility began immediately and many colleagues have already been fully vaccinated. RNAO thanks the Ontario government for listening to our call. To learn more, please see our media interviews:
