Pharmacies that are already offering the vaccine are listed here.

The province says this expansion will bring the total number of pharmacies offering the vaccine to over 1,400 locations — a number expected to reach approximately 1,500 by the end of April.

Vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine at pharmacies require an appointment to be made in advance.

In alignment with NACI recommendations, Ontario will not use the AstraZeneca vaccine for individuals under 55, while Health Canada continues to review the data.

"With more local pharmacies coming on board, receiving the COVID-19 vaccine will be easier and more convenient for eligible populations across the province," said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health.

"I strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated when it's their turn. Until we receive enough vaccines so that the majority of Ontarians can be vaccinated it remains critical for everyone to continue following public health measures we know work and keep us safe."
