A Mount Dennis doctor vaccinated “hundreds” of children under 5, according to the Toronto Star.
Sun practices out of the Crosstown Family Health Team clinic.
In a conversation with the Star, Sun said he gave the COVID vaccine to about 500 kids between the ages of six months and five years during a three-month span, a decision he said he made “to protect children.”
Sun, who believes he was “one of the only people in Ontario” vaccinating children under five, said he felt compelled to give the COVID vaccine “off label” to this age group after some parents started to ask for the shot in late December. They told him they wanted to protect their families during the Omicron wave.
The Star says Sun was asked to cease by Toronto Public Health and the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and that he has done so.
