A Message from our President

Read it here.

**************************************

To: All Our Kanata Seniors Council Members:

As you are well aware, we are in the midst of a serious health event.  Because the Kanata Seniors Centre is closed, we are not able to produce our monthly Senior News Letter. Here are a couple of items.

It has been decided that we will cancel the upcoming Retirement Living Fair planned for April  as well as all of our scheduled trips and activities. Of course our Cafe is shut down.

On a more positive note, as many of us are stuck at home, we’ve added a new feature to our website. The “Cafe Corner” will feature easy-to-make recipes from our Cafe Chefs for your culinary pleasure.

We will continue to update this website with further information as soon as it is available. Please continue to monitor this site.  

Hang in there! All our fantastic services will be restored asap.😃 

Thanks,

Kay Dubie,  KSC President

Other Information

The COVID-19 vaccine will be available next week to Ottawa residents who are 80 years old and older or who are adult recipients of chronic home care and who live in neighbourhoods where rates of COVID-19 are highest.

Details of the pop-up vaccination clinics, including how to book and hours of operation, will be announced Monday, March 1.

Only residents who are 80 years old and older or who are adult recipients of chronic home care who live in the following communities will be able to receive a vaccine starting Friday, March 5:

Emerald Woods

Heatherington

Ledbury

Heron Gate

Ridgemont

Riverview

Sawmill Creek

Due to the current limited supply of vaccine, those who are at the highest risk of catching COVID-19 are being vaccinated first. Rates of COVID-19 in the high-risk neighbourhoods are on average five times higher than in the rest of Ottawa. In some cases, they are 16 times higher. Risks for hospitalization and death are also higher. Limiting hospitalizations will help the whole community.

Pending vaccine availability, vaccinations will be rolled out to more high-risk neighbourhoods in the coming weeks. This information will be released weekly and promotion will be directed at residents in those neighbourhoods being served. Adult recipients of chronic home care will be contacted directly.

When there is an increase in vaccine supply, vaccinations will begin at community clinics for all other Ottawa residents who are over 80 years old or who are adult recipients of chronic home care. This is expected to take place in late March. If there is enough vaccine supply, these community clinics could open sooner.

Residents of all ages who are not yet eligible for the vaccine are encouraged to follow announcements on the City of Ottawa and OPH websites and social media channels, and from your local news media.

The Ontario government has identified adults aged 80 and older and adult recipients of chronic home care as priority groups to receive COVID-19 vaccinations during Phase 1 of the vaccine distribution plan. Please refer to Ontario’s vaccine distribution plan(link is external) for details on other priority groups within Phase 1 of the plan.  Caregivers, partners or roommates who are under 80 years old are not eligible at this time

Visit ottawa.ca for more information on the City’s vaccine distribution plan.
