York, Halton open up COVID-19 vaccine bookings for residents 65+

THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Wednesday, Mar 31st, 2021

York Region and Halton Region have announced residents 65 and older can begin to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments as of Wednesday.

York and Halton have been using their own booking portals, rather than the province’s. Approximately 15,000 appointments will be made available Wednesday morning in York.

Appointments are required and they will not be accepting any walk-ins.

The province began allowing those 70 and older in several GTA municipalities to book their shot on Monday.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Tuesday that Pfizer and BioNTech will send another five million doses of their mRNA vaccine to Canada in June, bringing their total shipments in the spring to 17.8 million.

The company is expected to ship more than one million doses a week in April and May, and more than two million every week in June.
