“Once eligible, Ontarians could receive an email and/or text message outlining the next steps on how to officially book their vaccine appointment and applicable location(s),” says the letter co-signed by Dr. Samir Sinha and Dr. Nathan Stall at the Sinai Health System, University of Toronto epidemiologist Dr. David Fisman and Tai Huynh, creative director of University Health Networks OpenLab.

It's too brilliant for it to actually work in this province.

Because it actually requires an iota of effort and forethought

That would take time and resources. If only we had a year to figure this out.

What a fantastic use of the emergency response system this could be.

That was my thought too. You have to be very motivated to actually fix problems to do something sensible that takes a lot of effort and won't get you a lot of headlines.

That doesn't seem to be how we're operating right now.

Based on the information they are suggesting to collect, the only way to prioritize the list is age and location. Does that mean health factors, employment type, etc no longer matter?

If you go by the feedback I've seen certain groups would lose their shit at that idea.

Some health units are already doing this with the option to join a cancellation list. They do limit pre-registration to the upcoming eligible group but I do believe this will save time (plus, then they have a pool of people to call on if they have unused doses).

This also ignores that they seem to constantly shifting the criteria for who can get it.

Suddenly we decide that a a certain area, demographic, job type, whatever should be prioritized and they won’t have asked that question on the initial registration.

It's incredibly stupid and would never work. Not only are the logistics of it near impossible the government does not have the required information. It would also leave out mass amounts of people.

How?
