Council has proclaimed October as Healthcare Month and Covid-19 Vaccination Month to honour healthcare workers and encourage citizens to be vaccinated.
“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have looked to our healthcare workers – doctors, nurses and support staff – to keep our healthcare system working and deliver services to our communities,” reads the proclamation. “It is clear that vaccination protects us individually and, by extension, our communities by ensuring that there is capacity available in our healthcare facilities to provide care to anyone who may need it, for any reason. Now is the time for everyone to do their part and get vaccinated against COVID-19.”
Members of council are urging residents to support doctors, nurses and support staff in our local healthcare facilities, and to recognize their ongoing commitment in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Council also encourages all residents to get vaccinated.
