City of Windsor Council Confirms All Elected Officials Boosted

Three Doses of Vaccine Recommended in Fight Against Omicron Variant

Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens and all members of City Council confirmed today that each has individually sought and received three doses of COVID-19 vaccine, consistent with public health recommendations and eligibility criteria.

City Council encourages all members of the general public to book their appointments as soon as possible in an effort to slow the dramatic rise of Omicron variant cases in our community.

Vaccination efforts have proven effective at reducing the spread and severity of illness. As community spread increases due to the more transmissible COVID-19 strain, the pressure on our regional health care resources cannot be overstated.

Appointments can be booked at www.WEVax.ca online.

Quotes:

“Whether this is your first, second or third dose, it has never been more important to book your appointment. This has been a challenging and stressful time for everyone. My thoughts are with parents struggling with kids learning from home and small businesses forced to close their doors once more. Windsorites have shown throughout this pandemic that we stand together in the fight against COVID-19, and today that means getting boosted.”
- Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens

“Windsor Regional Hospital wants to thank the Mayor and City Councillors for leading the way for our community and highlighting the importance of getting the third dose to not only protect themselves, but others in our community. This pandemic has shown all of us that the decision to vaccinate or not is a choice that affects the lives of others.”
- David Musyj, President & CEO, Windsor Regional Hospital

“Our vaccination efforts to date have proven to make a difference. This has not only become our last line of defence but our best approach to dealing with the Omicron Variant! Please join me and my many colleagues at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare as well as my family and friends. We are all vaccinated. It’s the best way to keep yourself safe, your loved ones safe, and everyone that you come in contact with healthy and protected. On many occasions I have witnessed and experienced first-hand the resiliency and determination of our community to always step up in the face of adversity. This is no different!”
- Bill Marra, President & CEO, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare
