Vaccine rollout – oh, the frustrations. As Ontario is transitioning to Stage two rollout it is encouraging that a third vac-cine has been approved – AstraZeneca, and Canada has se-cured access to 22 million doses of the vaccine, most of which are slated to arrive between April and September.
Last Wednesday we learned that Ontario’s online portal to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment will be launched on March 15, allowing people 80 and over to register first. This according to the province’s plan will take us until the end of March.
Retired Gen. Rick Hillier, the head of the province’s COVID-19 vaccine task force, made the announcement on February 24, saying that the province is “furiously working” to launch the online and telephone booking system in order to start vaccinating people in the general population.
