Vaccine appointments more than double in Ontario after Province announces vaccine passport


Published September 2, 2021 at 4:29 pm

Many who weren’t vaccinated have booked an appointment as a result of the Province’s announcement that they will soon be required to show proof of vaccination to enter certain facilities.

According to Christine Elliott, Minister of Health, the provincial booking system saw an influx of appointments on Thursday (September 2) after Premier Doug Ford announced Ontario would be implementing a vaccine passport the day before.

From Wednesday to Thursday, according to Elliott vaccine appointments more than doubled, and nearly half of appointments were for first doses.

However, while the announcement may have been the push many needed to book an appointment, it was also met with criticism among those staunchly opposed to vaccines.

Protests erupted in parts of the GTA, including at Queen’s Park, as well as in front of hospitals in downtown Toronto.
