The government in Ontario is set to announce an update on its COVID-19 vaccination rollout plan. Specifically, it will provide details on second doses for hot spots areas in the province, sources say. The Health Minister Christine Elliot will be giving the update Thursday afternoon with Solicitor General Sylvia Jones.
Last week Friday, the government said they would begin accelerating its second-shot rollout by expanding eligibility in the coming weeks. As of Monday, people 70 years or older, and anyone who received Pfizer or Moderna on or before April 18 can book an earlier dater for their second shot. Residents 80 and older became eligible to book a second dose earlier on May 28.
Since Tuesday night, over 1.2 million people have been given two doses and are considered fully vaccinated. Since mid-December, more than 10.4 million doses of vaccine have been administered across the province.
