Province makes second dose appointments available for those 70+ a week ahead of schedule

Those who received a mRNA vaccine on or before April 18 can also book a second shot

The province is bumping up its second dose timeline due to an increased supply of vaccines.

On Friday, Queen’s Park announced that anyone aged 70 and up, as well as those who received their first dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine on or before April 18, can book their second shot as of Monday, June 7. This is a week ahead of the schedule laid out by the province late last month.
