Earlier this month, Ontario began offering the vaccine to individuals aged 60 and over at pharmacies and primary care settings. With today’s expansion bringing the total number of pharmacies offering the vaccine to nearly 700 locations, it is expected that this number could reach approximately 1,500 by the end of April.
As of March 31, over 2,275,000 vaccine doses have been administered across the province, with over 81 per cent of Ontario residents aged 80 and over having received at least one dose.
More than half of residents aged 75 to 79 have now received their first shot.
Over 317,000 Ontarians are fully immunized, including 91 per cent of long-term care residents.
