“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,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “With more locations coming on board, these settings will make receiving the COVID-19 vaccine easier and more convenient for eligible populations across the province. I encourage everyone to sign up when it’s their turn. Until we receive enough vaccines so that the majority of Ontarians can be vaccinated it remains critical for everyone to continue following public health measures we know work and keep us safe.”
Ontario began offering the vaccine this month to individuals aged 60 and over at pharmacies and primary care settings. With Friday’s expansion bringing the total number of pharmacies offering the vaccine to nearly 700 locations, it is expected that this could reach approximately 1,500 by the end of April.
The province also continues to work with primary care professionals to offer vaccinations in primary care settings and community locations, such as physician offices, in collaboration with public health units. This initiative is expanding from locations in six public health unit regions including Simcoe-Muskoka offering the vaccine in every region across the province covering all 34 public health units.
