    Vaccinating the Portuguese Community

    On July 8 the Abrigo Centre held our first by-appointment-only COVID-19 vaccine pop-up clinic for our clients and volunteers. We were delighted with the turnout as 131 individuals got their first or second dose. A special thank you to Toronto Public Health, Toronto Fire Services and the Toronto Paramedic Services who provided this important care to our extended Abrigo family. The team that came out was amazing! Thank you again!

    A special thank you as well to Abrigo's Vaccine Engagement Team Ambassador Lead Matthew Correia and Resident Ambassador Tania Barbosa who spearheaded this effort and all the other staff members and volunteers who helped keep the entire day running smoothly.

    Please remember to get your vaccination, it will help protect you and keep you as safe as possible.
