Toronto is lowering the vaccination age to anyone born in 1951 or earlier.
“We will start allowing people from 70 years of age and over to make appointments starting at 8 a.m. Saturday to get vaccinated at any of the city run clinics,” said Mayor John Tory.
He’s pleading with those eligible to register as capacity increases from 1,300 per day to over 6,000 per day next week.
“Get vaccinated right now, don’t wait, now is the time to do it with appointments available, vaccine supply available, with the clinics up and running, now is the time to register.”
There are currently 30,000 available appointments available over the next week.
Appointments for the expanded 70-plus age group will be available Saturday, March 27th at three of the clinics Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Congress Centre and Scarborough Town Centre and two more as of Monday, March 29 at Mitchell Field Arena and Malvern Community Rec Centre.
The mass immunization clinic at the East York Town Centre will also be accepting bookings.
Eligible seniors can go to the city’s website and on the dark blue ”Book a Vaccine” button OR call the hotline at 1 -888 -999 – 6488.
