Ontario’s top doctor suggests new vaccination target to account for risk posed by Delta variant – CTV

July 20, 2021

TORONTO — Ontario’s top public health official says that the more transmissible Delta variant will continue to threaten the progress that the province has made until about 90 per cent of eligible residents have been fully vaccinated.

The Doug Ford government has said that the final step of its reopening plan lifting virtually all remaining public health restrictions can’t begin until at least 80 per cent of those 12 and older have been partially vaccinated and 75 per cent have been fully vaccinated.

But during a briefing on Tuesday Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore suggested that the province needs to set a higher target in order to fully account for the risk of Delta.

“Certainly I’d love Ontario to have one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. The modelling, though, tells us that once we’re at around 90 per cent of the eligible population immunized that the risk of Delta will be less for us,” he said.
