According to a statement from the City, the pink bandage on the Toronto sign is to encourage parents and caregivers to get children vaccinated. They also hope it will motivate eligible Torontonians to book their third dose appointments.
“Adding the pink bandage, the symbol of the City’s vaccination campaign, to the iconic Toronto Sign will signal brightly our commitment to helping everyone access COVID-19 vaccinations. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the many opportunities to become fully vaccinated,” Tory said in a statement.
