TORONTO — Mike Schreiner made the following statement regarding booster shots:
“Booster shots should be made available to everyone 18+ in Ontario immediately.
According to the Ontario Science Advisory Table, the omicron variant is here and doubling every three days. Boosters will help reduce spread, symptoms and hospitalizations and protect the healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed.
Many public health experts have said that waiting until January 4th to expand boosters to everyone 18+ is too late.
We have the supply. Let’s get moving.”
