CKTB - NEWS - Vaccine appointment

Children aged five to 11 in Ontario will be eligible to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments starting Tuesday.
    
The province says appointments are expected to begin as early as Thursday, when vaccine supply arrives at clinics across Ontario.
    
Bookings open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday through a variety of channels.
    
Those include the provincial COVID-19 vaccination portal and contact centre, directly through public health units using their own booking systems, participating pharmacies and select primary care providers.
    
In order to book an appointment, children must be turning five years old by the end of 2021.
    
The provincial government says approximately one million children aged five to 11 are eligible to receive the pediatric Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which was approved by Health Canada last week.
