Online booking tools improving as COVID-19 vaccine rollout ramps up

There’s been a ramp-up of Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout. After a rocky start in some regions, governments are promising faster and smoother operations as more vaccine doses arrive and mass vaccination clinics get underway. As of Wednesday, more than 2.6 million Canadians have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Ontario’s health minister says some residents will soon be able to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments at more than 300 pharmacies in three regions.

Christine Elliott said that the province is expecting to receive 190,000 doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on Tuesday and added that eligible residents will be able to book appointments as of Friday to receive their shots.

The rules of who is eligible for a shot and how to book appointments depends on where you live. There is a patchwork of phone and online booking systems that are in place across Canada and not all of them are working smoothly. Heather Yourex-West has our top story.
