A first dose of COVID-19 vaccine is now being offered to those 35 and older in York Region hot spot postal codes.
The priority codes are L4L, L6A, L4K and L4J located in Vaughan and L3S in Markham.
Some 20,000 new vaccine appointments opened up on Tuesday April 20th at 8:30am on the York Region public health website.
As of Tuesday morning, anyone 40 and older may book a COVID vaccine appointment at one of 14-hundred participating pharmacies offering the AstraZeneca shot.
Previously the age of eligibility in Ontario for the AZ shot was 55 and older.
Last week, Health Canada licensed the AstraZeneca vaccine for use for those 18 and older.
