Hundreds of thousands of Ontarians’ information may have been compromised in a data breach of the province’s vaccine management system last year.
Beginning Friday, some 360,000 people will receive notices that their personal information was part of the November 2021 data breach of the COVAXX system, the Ministry of Public and Business Service Delivery said in a statement Friday.
The ministry said it had been working with the Ministry of Health, police and Ontario’s privacy commissioner to determine the scale and impact of the breach. The ministry’s statement does not say how it occurred.
Two people were charged in connection with the breach last year.
