More Ontarians in hot spot communities and child-care workers who work in licensed settings will soon be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, the province said Tuesday.

As of 8 a.m. this morning, those aged 45 and older who live in one of 114 designated hot spot postal codes can begin booking appointments for a shot through either Ontario’s online portal or call centre, or via their local public health unit.

Importantly, residents aged 18 and older who live in the hot spot areas — which are spread out over 13 public health units — are also eligible for vaccines, though those under 45 can only access a shot through a mobile or pop-up clinic.

Meanwhile, child-care workers will be able to get an appointment starting Thursday morning. Eligible workers will get a letter from their employer that they will need ot have handy at the time of booking and at their appointment, the province said in a news release.
