The province agreed to allow Toronto to lower its vaccine eligibility age by 10 years, Tory said, after a "timely" request by the city.

Appointments are available throughout the Easter weekend in Toronto, and four vaccine sites — including the Metro Convention Centre — have open spots available as early as Friday.

"I encourage every resident who is eligible to get vaccinated to do it this Easter weekend if you can," Tory said. "Thank you to the thousands of people who have answered the call to sign up throughout this week, and thank you to all those family and friends who are helping to get their loved ones to get to the vaccination sites."
