Ontario residents born in 1981 or earlier outside of hot spot postal codes become eligible to book COVID-19 vaccines at mass immunization clinics on Thursday morning.
As of 8 a.m., eligible individuals can schedule an appointment through the provincial booking system, or directly through public health units that use their own booking system.
Earlier this week, individuals with health conditions deemed “at risk” and Group Two of people who cannot work from home also became eligible to book.
Due to increased vaccine supply the province will be adding high-risk health care workers, dialysis patients, and all First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals to the list of those eligible to book an appointment to receive their second dose of the vaccine earlier than the extended four-month interval.
The province says booking for this will open by the end of the week and more details will be provided.
The City of Toronto is opening 5,000 new vaccination appointments to help meet the demand as the eligibility expands. The shots will be delivered between May 17 and May 23.
The city also says more than 20,000 appointments will remains open for the week of June 7.
