Ontario is Expanding COVID-19 Vaccination Eligibility

Other groups who will become eligible to book through the provincial system Thursday include elementary and secondary school workers, individuals with high-risk health conditions, frontline workers in the province's "group one" category who can not work from home, and First Nations, Inuit, and Métis individuals.

The government announced all adults 18 and older living in any of 114 designated hot spot postal codes will be able to book their shots through its online portal as of 8 a.m. Monday.

Ontario says 76,685 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine were administered since Saturday's report.

Health Minister Christine Elliott credited an increase in vaccine supply for the province's accelerated inoculation efforts, particularly in virus hot spots.

The province reports that 375,905 people in Ontario have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and are now considered vaccinated against the disease. That includes individuals with the highest risk health conditions, child care workers, and education workers who provide direct support to students with special education needs.

Unfortunately, though the welcome news is another awesome advancement toward getting more of the population vaxxed after months of a snail's-pace immunization rollout, it appears that the online waiting lists to nab an appointment in some regions are even longer than the exasperating in-person lineups for pop-up clinics.

If supply holds, the province expects to make those 18 and older eligible for a shot at mass sites provincewide on the week of May 24. The number of cases for any city or region may differ slightly from what is reported by the province, because local units report figures at different times.

Officials reported 985 new cases in Toronto, 714 in Peel Region and 351 in York Region.
