In ten more public health units across Ontario, the minimum age for COVID-19 vaccines is being lowered. People born before 1951 can now use the provincial system to schedule their shots in the regions as of Monday morning.
The new minimum age was set at 75 years old. The outbreak comes after the province reported 2,448 new cases of the virus on Sunday, as well as 10 more deaths. In Ontario, 917 people have been admitted to hospitals with the virus.
Since Saturday’s update, more than 50,200 tests have been completed. So far, 1,981,282 vaccine doses have been administered in the province, with 64,950 doses given since the last daily update. Over 10% of hospitals did not report their numbers over the weekend, according to the province, but that number is expected to rise.
