COVID-19 Vaccine News

We’ve started 2021 with some great news. Vaccinations for hospital staff in Ottawa have begun! This week the first members of our QCH team received their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Paytonn Abraham was the first member of the QCH team to receive her vaccination. Paytonn is in environmental services and works to keep our hospital clean and safe for everyone. 

“I was so excited to get the call for the vaccine – it was an immediate yes for me. This vaccine helps keep me safe at work. And helps to keep the patients at QCH safe.”

Paytonn Abraham, QCH Environmental Services, and QCH’s Dr. Murthy and Dr. Rose receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
