The Ontario government announced on Monday morning that it is expanding vaccine eligibility at mass immunization clinics.
The initiative, which takes effect at 8:00 a.m. on May 18, will allow individuals aged 18 and over to book a vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system and call centre, or through public health units.
The government had previously expanded booking eligibility to 18 and over residents who live in one of the 114 hot spot communities earlier this month.
"Ontario is experiencing very positive trends in vaccine demand. The province and public health units will continue to make appointments available as vaccine supply is confirmed," an excerpt from the report reads.
It's also worth noting that those 17 years old, who will be turning 18 in 2021 can also book their appointment for the Pfizer vaccine.
