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.
