11:45 a.m.: Older Ontarians are in line for COVID-19 shots over the next few months but anyone under 60 will be waiting well into summer, says the retired general heading the province’s vaccination task force.
A web site and a telephone hotline for appointments are slated to open March 15 with jabs for about 600,000 seniors 80 and up beginning in the third week of March, Rick Hillier told a news conference Wednesday.
Starting April 15, those 75 and up will be able to book time slots at vaccination centres near their homes, followed by May 1 for the 70+ age category, June for those 65 and older, and July 1 for the 60+ crowd.
