What a gorgeous day in Toronto! With mostly sunny skies and a nice temperature of 17°C at around 10AM, residents neighboring the Aga Khan Museum as well as other hot spot areas in Toronto are steadily showing up to get vaccinated against Covid-19. Two large tents have been set up — one to administer the vaccine and the second tent is a waiting area for those who have received the vaccine for any unexpected changes in their health or allergic reactions. Patients are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes before they can leave the clinic.
The administration of Moderna doses began shortly after 8AM on Saturday, May 15, 2021. It will continue for the remainder of the day until the supply of 2500 doses runs out. None of the patients I spoke to had any immediate reaction to the vaccine, and they were delighted to walk away with a beautiful Aga Khan Museum tote bag as well as a stick-on-label proclaiming “I GOT MY COVID-19 VACCINE.” The bag is being offered to the first 500 recipients of the vaccine (by around 12:45PM, the bag supplies had run ou). The clinic is a collaborative initiative of the Michael Garron Hospital, East Toronto Health Partners, Ismaili CIVIC, Aga Khan Museum and Aga Khan Park. I commence the post with a few photos from this morning’s clinic followed by photos taken in early afternoon, and conclude the piece with an (unedited) interview I conducted with two lady recipients of the Covid-19 Moderna vaccine.
