Got the Pfizer jab for covid19 yesterday. The clinic was in a sports complex and was very well organised. It took 10 minutes to walk through the various check points, get the jab, and then linger for fifteen minutes in case of shock. I was pleasantly surprised given that there has been much grumbling and frustration concerning the vaccine rollout. This whole week was fully booked as soon as the online portal opened last week but I was lucky to see a few slots open when I made a random check this week. However, only two percent of Ontario people have been vaccinated and another lockdown is looming.
Canada was once a world leader in developing vaccines or solutions for Polio and Diabetes. But various governments decided to sell the excellent research facilities. They also got sloppy with the maintenance of PPE for health care workers. Now the Canadian government is finally woke to the fact that we can't rely on other countries for health care materials. Vaccine labs will open up next year. Better late than never.
