Davenport Vaccine Town Halls
In an effort to inform our community about the vaccine rollout, I have hosted 3 online community meetings with Ward 9 Councillor Ana Bailao and public health officials including Dr. Eileen De Villa, including one in Portuguese.
Portuguese-language vaccine information:
Davenport has the largest number of Portuguese-speaking residents anywhere in Canada. Many of you have asked for information to share with Portuguese-speaking neighbours and family. Toronto Public Health has provided us with links to resources, below. In addition the city is funding community organizations to hire 250 Ambassadors to work with their local communities to increase vaccine confidence and access to them.
The provincial booking hotline provides support in 300 languages.
