COVID 19

On June 2, 2021, Ontario’s Stay-at-Home order was allowed to expire, with most other public health and workplace safety measures being maintained provincewide until Ontario enters Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen.  

The Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, will move the province into Step One of its Roadmap to Reopen at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, June 11, 2021.

Public health and workplace safety measures will continue to apply in Step One, including maintaining physical distance, capacity limits and wearing face coverings in indoor spaces and whenever physical distancing is a challenge.

The Ontario government has released the Roadmap to Reopen, a three-step plan to safely and cautiously reopen the province and gradually lift public health measures based on the provincewide vaccination rate and improvements in key public health and health care indicators.

On May 28, 2021, the Ontario government announced it was accelerating the rollout to book second dose vaccine appointments starting with individuals aged 80 and over, beginning on May 31, 2021. On June 7, 2021, individuals turning ages 70 and over in 2021, as well as individuals who received their first dose of an mRNA vaccine on or before April 18, 2021, will be eligible to schedule an appointment to receive their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine through the provincial booking system. If there is sufficient vaccine supply, it is anticipated that the majority of Ontario residents who choose to receive the vaccine will be able to be fully vaccinated by the end of the summer.

The Township continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation through Peterborough Public Health (PPH).  PPH is working closely with local, provincial and federal partners to manage and respond effectively.   

Vaccination Updates:

 12-17 vaccinations
PPH has identified June 15th, 16th, and 17th as their youth clinics dates at the Evinrude Centre and appointments opened for booking through the provincial booking system on Monday May 31st.
 2nd dose appointments:
The province has announced that individuals who had a 2nd dose vaccination appointment booked can now move these up, depending on age and when the 1st dose was received.
  • Starting May 31, those 80+ ae able to rebook their second dose vaccine appointment.
  • June 14 – 70+ able to rebook.
  • June 28 – remaining age groups based on when they received their 1st dose.

Unfortunately there are limited vaccine appointments available in Peterborough at the present time due to limited vaccine supply and significant vaccine demand. PPH is encouraging individuals to look at pharmacies as an option for their second dose. Pharmacies have access to the Ontario COVax system and will be able to see when individuals received their 1st dose and what type in order to give the appropriate 2nd dose.

To book at a pharmacy, use the Ontario vaccine booking system, click on “pharmacy” instead of “clinic”. You will see in the list of pharmacies and whether that pharmacy has Pfizer or Moderna.

 2nd dose AstraZeneca
Ontario guidance has been released re: booking a second dose appointment for those that received AZ as a first dose. Individuals are asked to consult their healthcare provider about the option of receiving a second dose of AZ or a dose of an mRNA vaccine.
Vaccine Receipts
The province has updated the online booking system to be used as a tool for individuals to view and download their vaccine receipts. The vaccine receipt is the piece of paper or in the form of an email that a person receives after they have received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The receipt contains information on date, time, and brand of vaccine. For individuals that may needs proof of vaccination and have lost their receipt, they can now go to the provincial booking system, fill out the form as if they were going to book an appointment, and choose the ‘view my receipt’ option.
Resources for individuals to prepare for vaccination
One of the barriers to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is needle anxiety. PPH has updated the webpage at the link provided with resources to assist individuals or healthcare providers to address needle anxiety. To accompany this, the Evinrude clinic will also have a designated space for individuals that may wish to have more privacy when receiving the vaccine. Signs will be posted at the clinic with additional information
Booking for individuals without a health card
We have created an online form for individuals without a health card who wish to book a vaccine appointment. This form allows us to start the process to register an individual in COVax
