Once the new pharmacies start accepting appointments — which is expected to happen over the course of this coming week — they'll get added to Ontario's full list of participating pharmacies.

The new pharmacies are located around the province — 55 of them are in Durham, 44 in Middlesex-London, 78 in Ottawa, 108 in Peel, 40 in Waterloo, 108 in York Region, and the rest are scattered in many other communities in Ontario.

According to a press release, the province is planning to have over 1,500 pharmacies distributing vaccines by the end of April.
