Vaccine Webinars

Upcoming information sessions available to employees, people who use services, and their families.

With COVID-19 Vaccinations receiving approval for use in Canada it is important that the people we support and our employees have reliable information in order to make informed decisions around receiving their vaccinations.

You can register for upcoming webinars by clicking on the link included in the emails that you receive from Christian Horizons.

February 26th – Organizational Webinar
Similar to our last webinar, we will start by providing you with information and insights regarding the vaccines. We’ll also hear from a person who uses our services, who is an active member of Our Voices Matter self-advocate group. Then we’ll move into groups by the community, where you will have the opportunity to connect with your local community leaders who will share an update.

February 12th – Organizational Webinar
The webinar for February 12th will be an opportunity for everyone to discuss unique situations to COVID-19 vaccinations at Christian Horizons. This will include a conversation around obtaining consent. There will be time set aside in this webinar to allow for breakout sessions with each district to discuss district specific issues/concerns around vaccine access.

February 5th – Dr. Phillip Dwek
Dr. Dwek is an infectious diseases specialist primarily working in Oshawa. Dr. Dwek completed his internal medicine specialty in 2015 at Western University and went on to specialize in infectious diseases at the University of Toronto completing his training in 2019.

Christian Horizons is continually monitoring the situation and in regular contact with Canadian Public Health Authorities. As well, we are working closely with our teams, planning and responding to the situation, to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

We are taking all appropriate measures to ensure homes and community locations are safe and that we have plans and protocols in place to ensure they stay that way. Our focus is on providing essential direct support to people who use our services, and the infrastructure to make that happen. As of today, except in exceptional circumstances, we will not admit visitors to our support sites. We are thankful for technology, and will gladly facilitate visits via Skype, FaceTime or other technology-supported means.

We continue to work together to ensure the health and safety of the people who use our services, our employees, and the community broadly.
