Twenty-two Niagara pharmacies added to AstraZeneca vaccine pilot project
Twenty-two Niagara pharmacies will soon be able to offer the AstraZeneca vaccine to people 55 and older.
The province is adding 350 pharmacies to the list of participating locations, with some locations set to begin offering the vaccine as early as Saturday.
With the latest additions, nearly 700 locations will offer the shot with plans to expand to 1,500 by the end of April.
Some pharmacies, such as Boggio's & Edwards in Ridgeway, have created wait lists for the shot. Anyone who wants to get a shot at a pharmacy is asked to call ahead to ensure vaccine doses are available and staff are prepared to administer the vaccine.
