Ontarians aged 12 and up can book COVID-19 vaccines through the provincial system starting today.
They can book through the provincial online portal, call centre and through pharmacies offering the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
The age group is becoming eligible a week ahead of schedule.
The province says it made the change at the request of public health units.
Some public health units and pop-up clinics had already started vaccinating youngsters, but the move makes access more equitable across Ontario.
Only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for use in people between the ages of 12 and 18.
