Results

Among chronic dialysis patients in Ontario, 93.8% had received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by December 31, 2021, and 92.6% had received two doses. 68.3% had received three doses.

Why it matters

Individuals on chronic dialysis should be prioritized for vaccination due to increased risk of infection and death.

Improving care in Ontario

We provided data to the province’s key decision-making tables to advocate for the prioritization of chronic dialysis patients for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have held regular calls with Regional Renal Programs to share data and discuss key topics to support real-time response.

We are tracking key metrics related to COVID-19 vaccinations among chronic dialysis patients.
