Toronto residents aged 70 and older can start booking COVID-19 vaccinations at city clinics today.
Mayor John Tory announced Friday the city was expanding the eligibility to the age group, urging people to get the vaccine.
He says the number of elderly residents signing up for the shot has been decreasing since bookings opened to those aged 75 and older earlier this week.
Tory says the city has almost 30,000 appointments available over the coming week.
Starting today, individuals born in 1951 and earlier can schedule their shot through the province’s booking portal.
The city says appointments will be available at three of Toronto’s mass immunization clinics today and at two additional clinics as of Monday.
