Ontario is rolling out Omicron-targeted COVID-19 vaccines, starting with residents considered the most vulnerable, including those aged 70 and older, long-term care residents and health-care workers.
The province said bivalent vaccine appointments could be booked as of Monday morning through its online booking system, with the first appointments also available the same day. Call +1 (833) 943-3900 to book an appointment.
Dr. Kieran Moore, Ontario’s top public health doctor, encouraged people to get the shot in a statement that described it as safe and effective protection against variants that are currently circulating in the province.
“As vaccine protection decreases over time, I encourage all Ontarians aged five and over to receive the booster dose they are eligible for,” Moore said in a written statement.
