Public health units map out plans to vaccine kids between 5 and 11 once approved by Health Canada

Several public health units across southern Ontario say preparations are underway to offer the Pfizer vaccine to children aged 5 to 11 as soon as the shot is approved. Niagara’s acting Medical Officer of Health says cases within the region’s education system are predominantly in elementary schools in children who are not yet eligible for the vaccine. Nicole Martin reports.


  1. Should the vaccination of children become mandatory, can the school boards accommodate children switching to online model?

    The deadline is Oct, 1 to request a switch, however, many of us want to keep our kids in school/in person classes for as long as possible.
    What if they mandate it late October /November? Will our children still be able to continue to learn?
    Who should we ask this question to?
