“Things are looking really, really, positive out there but we have to keep going and vaccines are coming in everyone’s on a roll,” remarked  Premier Ford as he received his first dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccine at an Etobicoke pharmacy. “We’re getting into high priority neighbourhoods and we’re also going into a lot of large employers right across the hot areas.”
