According to Health Minister Christine Elliot, details on registration for COVID-19 vaccine will be coming very soon for Ontario. As mentioned by Elliot at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, 34 public health units have submitted individual plans to the province’s vaccine task force in order to distribute and administer doses.
Depending on which public health unit you will live in, you will have many options to receive the vaccine and to set up an appointment either through an online portal, a telephone booking-system or through your respective family doctors. Ontario is expected to receive a more steady supply of the vaccine in the upcoming weeks and the local units will be prepared to give out shots as soon as they’re available.
Phase 1 of the immunization campaign which was more focused on those who were high risks such as long term care and retirement home have shifted towards front line workers and essential caregivers. According to the head of the task force, Rick Hiller, the province hopes to start giving out vaccinations to adults aged 80 and above by the middle of March.
