COVID-19 vaccination requirement for essential care partners

by 22q Administrator

As of October 22nd, 2021 (Friday), all essential care partners must show their proof of vaccination against COVID-19 when they enter the Toronto General Hospital and other UHN sites.

If you are accompanying an individual with 22q for their in-person appointment at the Dalglish Family 22q Clinic, please ensure that you are vaccinated. Our recommendation regarding COVID-19 vaccination is:

All individuals with 22q should receive the vaccine - the two doses protect very well against the worst effects of the virus.

All close contacts (e.g., immediate family members) of individuals with 22q should also receive the vaccine, in order to protect the person in the family likely to be most in danger of getting very sick from the virus (that is, the person with 22q).
