On April 20, Ontario opened up a new eligibility group for the AstraZeneca vaccine to people aged 40 years and older which means more people, including Trudeau, can now get a dose at a pharmacy.

He said that he gets a flu shot every year at his nearby pharmacy and the experience "is always unbelievably positive."

Trudeau also noted that if he can encourage Canadians to know that getting a vaccine is safe and the right thing to do by getting a dose himself then he's "looking forward to that."
