Ontarians Are Freaking Out About The Long Wait To Book A Vaccine Appointment Online

Registration is now open for those living in Ontario's hot-spots who were born in 2003 or earlier.

On Monday, April 3, Ontarians between the ages of 18 and 39 who live in a hot-spot postal code became eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.

Registration opened at 8 a.m., but by 8:08 a.m., there were over 95,000 people in line and the estimated wait time was over an hour.

Ontarians quickly took to social media to share their mixed feelings — excitement about the opportunity to book their appointment, but frustration about the long wait.

Someone with over 77,000 people in front of them called it The Hunger Games of vaccines.

Another person compared it to the process of buying concert tickets — if anyone remembers what that's like.

Some are feeling less than optimistic about their wait time.

Those who don't live in one of Ontario's hot-spots can look forward to their turn in just a few weeks, as all residents 18 years old and older are set to be eligible by May 24.
