COVID-19 Vaccination for Ontario Dental Hygienists

Ontario has started to roll out its three-phased vaccine distribution implementation plan. Health care professionals have been included in Phase 1 of this plan. For general information, you can view the Ministry of Health webpage Getting a COVID-19 vaccine in Ontario or review their guidance tool Ethical framework for COVID-19 vaccine distribution.

Each of the province’s 34 Public Health Units are responsible for vaccinating residents in their region. The PHUs are using various approaches to share information, to pre-register or book appointments and to operate clinics to administer vaccines. CDHO’s role is to ensure that registrants are aware of the plan being implemented by their PHU. As such, the College is in contact with the Ministry and the various PHUs in order to disseminate information, either through direct contact with registrants based on where they live and/or practise or by posting information to this page.
