Toronto to open COVID-19 vaccination bookings for residents aged 80 and over

·1 min read

Toronto residents aged 80 and older will be able to book appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations at the city's mass immunization sites starting Friday.

The city says 133,000 appointments will be available at three of its mass vaccine sites.

It says the slots will range from March 17, when the sites open, to April 11.

Toronto's fire chief, who leads the city's COVID-19 response, says residents will get early access to the province's booking portal to make the appointments.

Matthew Pegg says that will prevent a delay in launching the city's vaccination operations.

Ontario's booking system will be fully deployed on Monday.
