Toronto residents 60 and older will be able to book a COVID vaccine appointment starting Friday at 8 a.m.
“Anyone born in 1961 or earlier can register to get vaccinated at any of the city operated sites, I encourage every residents who is eligible to get vaccinated and to do it this Easter weekend, our clinics are open through the Easter weekend and appointments are available,” urged Toronto Mayor John Tory.
The city asked the Ford government to approve the lower age limit on the provincial portal and Premier Doug Ford says it’s also been lowered in Peel Region.
“We’re now lowering the age down to 60 for Toronto and Peel but there are still a ton of 70 year-olds and even 80 plus in these regions that we have to get vaccinated but at least this will allow them to not have empty seats,” said Premier Ford.
