“Now is the time to get vaccinated,” York Region District School Board tells students



The York Region District School Board (YRDSB) official Twitter account is active with posts urging students to get the shot and letting them know about services around them to get the shot.

On July 22, the YRDSB also retweeted its post, claiming that “infection with COVID-19 can have serious consequences for all age groups, including young people.”

“Now is the time to get vaccinated,” he added.

“By working together to ensure that everyone who is eligible for a vaccine can get one, we can reduce the number of COVID-19 cases in our community and our school. “

So far, the YRDSB has drawn criticism for the introduction of the hybrid education model for next year. Its counterpart, the Catholic District School Board, has removed the hybrid model for its elementary schools, but not for secondary.

The YRDSB, however, said that if enough students opt for in-person learning, there will be no blended education.

Students aged 12 to 17 who have not received their first dose “should get one as soon as possible or get your second dose if your last dose was at least 21 days old.”

A total of 1,552,984 vaccines were administered to York Region residents living anywhere in Ontario. As of July 21, 845,804 York Region residents have received at least one dose and 707,180 have received two doses. This equates to 81.5% of adults aged 18 and over received one dose, while 69.5% of adults are fully immunized with two doses.
