Starting Tuesday this week, Ontario is extending the eligibility for receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. The province said everyone 18 and older will be eligible even if they do not classify as ‘at risk’.
Citizens wanting to book an appointment can go through the province’s online portal and call center or with a local public health unit. This will all take into effect on Tuesday at 8 a.m ET. The announcement comes after Ontario expects around 2.2 million doses of vaccines to arrive ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend.
Adolescents turning 18 in 2021 will be able to book an appointment for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. It is the only vaccine that is approved for use on children aged 12 and older in Canada. Also, Ontario hit a record high of 154,104 shots administered last Friday. It is the first time the province has passed 150,000 doses given in one day.
