A collaboration that will have delivered nearly 50,000 doses in 17 clinic days
We’re so proud of Bruce Power – which has been one of our Ontario investments since 2003 – and their collaboration to support the provincial vaccination rollout.
In early May, Bruce Power – which is based in Bruce County and provides the Province of Ontario with clean, reliable electricity – brought together a coalition of businesses, unions and organizations to provide financial, logistical and volunteer support to help set-up and operate a vaccine facility.
The vaccine hub – called Hockey Hub, located at the CAA Centre – was established in collaboration with the Region of Peel, including Peel Public Health and the Grey Bruce Health Unit. The site opened to the public in late May, and will have delivered nearly 50,000 doses in 17 clinic days between May 26 and June 30. What amazing teamwork!
Grey Bruce Health Unit’s lead doctor, Dr. Ian Arra, brought a team of clinical staff from the Unit to the site to support on site vaccinations and share successful processes to administer vaccines to large numbers of people.
“This site was made possible through strong collaboration between public health units, hundreds of volunteers and the many organizations who came together to provide support,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “Bruce Power is proud to stand alongside so many businesses in support of the province’s vaccination efforts.”
The hub was recently visited by Hon. Sylvia Jones, Solicitor General of Ontario. She said on the visit, “the teamwork shown between Peel Public Health, the Grey Bruce Health Unit, and the private organizations who came together to establish this hub and expand our vaccination capacity is truly commendable.”
