On Wednesday, April 7, Premier Doug Ford announced that mobile vaccination efforts would be available soon to vaccinate residents 18 years of age and older in COVID-19 hot spots.
With the possibility of Ontario vaccines for 18+ residents on the horizon, Narcity reached out to the Ministry of Health for the full scoop — here's what we know so far.
To figure out whether you're in a hot spot, you'll need to take a look at your postal code. If your postal code matches one of the neighbourhoods identified as a hot spot, you're going to be eligible for a vaccine soon.
Right now, residents that are 50 years of age or older in hot spots are able to start booking their vaccines at mass immunization clinics and the Ministry of Health says that mobile teams and pop-up clinics will soon be able to vaccinate those over 18 in Toronto and Peel.
However, mobile teams and pop-up clinics will not use the provincial booking system. Instead, you will have to book using your public health region's system. More information will become available in the coming weeks.
