The Ajmera Transplant Centre is actively working with the Ministry of Health, Trillium Gift of Life, and Canadian Society of Transplantation to advocate for our transplant patients to be given a high priority in receiving COVID-19 vaccines.

For information about safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines for transplant recipients, please read the guidelines created by the Ajmera Transplant Centre and endorsed by the Canadian Society of Transplantation, and watch this video by Dr. Deepali Kumar, Transplant Infectious Diseases Specialist at the Ajmera Transplant Centre. Please note: this video does not substitute personal health advice from your doctor.

The Ajmera Transplant Centre, in alignment with Ontario Health, our partners at Trillium Gift of Life Network and our peer organizations, is cautiously monitoring the centre's transplant activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The safety of our patients, living donors and staff is our number one priority. Ongoing measures are being taken to ensure that donated organs are COVID-free and that the transplant units remain low COVID-19 risk areas. Please visit UHN’s COVID-19 section to learn more about UHN's guidelines regarding scheduled services and what you need to know before arriving at the hospital.

As we shared before, you will continue to keep your priority on the waiting list during the pandemic.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your Transplant Coordinator for information and support. We are grateful for your patience, trust and understanding. We know this period has been difficult for our patients and their families. Please visit UHN’s Transplant Psychosocial Team page to access more information and resources.
