Ontario sees 613 new COVID-19 cases as vaccine appointments open to kids aged 5 to 11 – CBC

Ontario expects more than 1 million doses of Pfizer’s paediatric COVID vaccine

Nov 23, 2021

Ontario reported 613 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, as vaccination appointments opened for children aged five to 11 in the province.

The provincial booking portal was initially scheduled to open at 8 a.m. Tuesday, but people reported on social media that they were able to access it even earlier.

More than 68,000 COVID-19 vaccine appointments were booked by 10 a.m., a spokesperson for Premier Doug Ford said on social media.

Families can make appointments through the portal and contact centre, public health units’ internal booking systems, as well as some pharmacies and primary care providers.

Those with two kids or more, however, are not able to book multiple spots at the same time, meaning that eligible siblings can end up with appointments on different days and at different clinics.
