Ontario is beginning to transition into Phase 2 of its vaccine distribution, which includes using pharmacies and doctors' offices to give out COVID-19 vaccine doses.

In addition to the hundreds of pharmacy clinics, Toronto is planning to operate around 49 clinics in hospitals and 46 clinics in community health care centres.

The city is also running nine mass vaccination sites, including the Metro Convention Centre.

However the question of when vaccine doses will become available is still up in the air, Tory told reporters at Monday's press conference.

"All of our plans are entirely dependent upon vaccine supply from the Government of Canada," Tory said. "We do expect more vaccines will be arriving very soon."

Other parts of Ontario have already begun offering vaccination appointments to parts of the general public, but demand is high.

The York Region Public Health region had over 20,000 appointments made in two hours when it opened its booking system on Monday morning.

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.
