The expansion comes as Ontario nears a vaccination milestone: 10 million doses administered.
On Sunday, the province reported that it had given out more than 9,992,000 doses, with more than a million Ontarians fully vaccinated.
Locally, 346,960 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Hamilton, accounting for 65.2 per cent of eligible residents.
Also on Monday, the province’s incoming chief medical officer of health begins his transition to the new role.
Dr. Kieran Moore will start working with the current top public health official, Dr. David Williams, before taking over in a few weeks time.
