·1 min read

Toronto's mayor is urging anyone 70 years or older to get vaccinated.

John Tory says three new COVID-19 mass vaccination clinics will open Monday, but there are still many appointments unfilled.

He says supply issues of the vaccine have been resolved and the city is ramping up its rollout of the shots.

Ontario reported 2,448 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, the fourth consecutive day with more than 2,000 daily cases.

Tory says more than 450,000 people in Toronto have received doses thus far.

He says he won't be satisfied until all the vaccination appointments are "sold out."
