Action Alert: Mandate COVID-19 vaccination for all health-care workers, premier!

RNAO has led the way in advocating for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for health-care workers in Ontario. There is strong and growing evidence about the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines in preventing serious illness and hospitalization, as well as in reducing transmission of the virus.

Join us! Call on the premier to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for all health-care workers in Ontario.

Health-care workers are at increased risk of contracting COVID-19 and transmitting it. New variants, such as the delta and lambda, pose an increased risk for those who are unvaccinated, and these variants are more dangerous and transmissible. We believe that provincial and territorial governments across Canada should institute mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for health-care workers in all public and private settings. Rules for vaccination should not be left to individual employers. Now is the time for Ontario to show leadership in this critical issue.

Mandatory vaccination will result in all health-care workers being vaccinated, which will help prevent a fourth wave of COVID-19. Ontarians requiring health services must not be burdened with the fear of contracting COVID-19 from health-care providers.

Let the premier know that the COVID-19 vaccination should be made mandatory for all health-care workers in Ontario.
