Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated frontline health care providers, Ontario’s vaccine rollout in primary care settings and pharmacy settings has been a success.
Ontario is ramping up capacity in its COVID-19 vaccine rollout, with over 350 additional pharmacies and more primary care settings across Ontario offering the AstraZeneca vaccine to individuals aged 55 or older, with some locations to begin offering the vaccine as early as April 3.
By expanding to more pharmacy locations, our government is making it easier and more convenient for eligible populations to receive their vaccine across the province.
Ontario is ready to dramatically increase the number of vaccines we can administer once we receive a steady and reliable supply from the federal government.
With approximately 700 pharmacy locations now offering the vaccine, it is expected the number of pharmacy locations could expand to approximately 1,500 locations by the end of April, pending supply from the federal government.
We continue to work with primary care professionals to offer vaccinations in primary care settings and community locations, like physician offices, in collaboration with public health units to offer the vaccine in every region across the province covering all 34 public health units.
Only COVID-19 vaccines that Health Canada determines to be safe and effective will be approved for use in Ontario. In alignment with updated NACI recommendations, Ontario will not use AstraZeneca vaccine for individuals under 55, while data is being reviewed by Health Canada.
I encourage everyone to get vaccinated once it’s their turn, but until Ontario receives enough vaccines so the majority of Ontarians can be vaccinated, it remains critical for everyone to continue following public health measures.
