Trudeau Says He'll Get A Vaccine Dose At A Pharmacy Now That AstraZeneca Is For Ages 40+
It's been revealed that Justin Trudeau's COVID-19 vaccine appointment might be happening soon now that eligibility has changed in Ontario.
During a discussion with pharmacists from across the country, he said he looks forward to being given a vaccine dose by a pharmacist as soon as he can and later in the day he said he's been working to get himself an appointment.
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."
