It seems like Doug Ford was really enjoying the occasion last Friday when he got his first vaccine dose — at least enough to make a quick joke.

Premier Ford received his first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine on Friday, April 9, at a pharmacy in Etobicoke, and decided to make a joke after getting his shot by playing dead.

Ford can be seen receiving his dose and then closing his eyes and dropping his head, as if the vaccine had killed him, before laughing with onlookers.

The AstraZeneca vaccine is not available to people under 55 because of concerns about "serious blood clots", though Health Canada has said the benefits outweigh the risks.

Ontario announced today it was sending the AstraZeneca to over 700 more pharmacies in the province and appointments will be made available this week. 

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.
