Some Toronto pharmacies offering COVID-19 vaccine to anyone over 18 – fr


Several pharmacies in Toronto and Peel are now offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to all adults aged 18 and over.
The Ontario government announced the expanded eligibility on its website on May 7. A total of 78 pharmacies in hot spots will administer doses of the mRNA vaccine.

Previously, only people aged 55 and over could get an injection of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at a few hot spot pharmacies as part of a provincial pilot program.

Justin Bates, CEO of the Ontario Pharmacy Association, said on social networks that he was “satisfied” with the expansion of the immunization program.

Earlier this week, the province revealed that 60 pharmacies in Durham, Hamilton, Ottawa, Windsor and York Region would offer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to people aged 18 and older.

To date, Ontario has recorded 489,087 cases of COVID-19 and 8,261 virus-related deaths.
