Announcement of COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Task Force

Published on December 04, 2020

The safe and successful delivery of COVID-19 vaccines is a vital mission, and one of the largest logistical exercises undertaken in a century.

That’s why the government appointed members of the COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Task Force, who have experience and expertise in key areas related to planning and distribution.

The valuable advice and varied perspectives that will be provided by this group of experts will support the safe and effective implementation of Ontario's immunization program.

The Task force is led by General Hillier, whose extensive experience in providing governance, strategic and public policy advice, and leading multiple national and international endeavours are essential in leading Ontario through the successful implementation of the COVID-19 immunization program.

Beginning immediately, the task force will focus on several key areas, specifically priority populations for vaccination, delivery, logistics and administration, clinical guidance as well as public education and outreach.

This framework will inform the sequence in which Ontarians are immunized and will be part of the provincial prioritization framework.
