Children in Toronto 1st in Canada to receive pediatric COVID-19 vaccine, local officials say – GLOBAL

November 23, 2021

A group of children in Toronto were the first in Canada to receive a dose of the recently approved Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccine, local officials say.

In a news release, City of Toronto officials said 10 vaccines were being provided Tuesday “ahead of a limited number of youth vaccination appointments on Wednesday and a large number of vaccinations on Thursday.”

Children at The Hospital for Sick Children attended a clinic to be vaccinated, the statement said.

Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott, Toronto Mayor John Tory, Toronto Medical Officer of Health Dr. Eileen de Villa, and SickKids hospital CEO Ronald Cohen were on hand to witness the milestone.

“This is a fantastic day today here in Ontario to have the first children aged 5 to 11 vaccinated — the first children in Canada. And I can tell you that they were all very happy and very brave to be vaccinated,” Elliott said.
