Ontario shortening interval between COVID-19 vaccine doses

CKTB - NEWS - COVID-19 vaccine

Ontario is shortening the interval between doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, starting with adults aged 80 and older next week.
The province says it's able to make the move because  65 per cent of all adults have at least one shot and Ontario now has a steady vaccine supply.
Ontario has been administering COVID-19 shots four months apart with some exceptions.
The province says the shortened interval could be as small as 28 days for the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines in the coming months, depending on supply.
Those who got a first shot of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine will be offered a second dose after 12 weeks, though it could be a different vaccine depending on awaited federal guidance.
Moving up the second dose is optional and people will keep their original appointments if they don't re-book for an earlier shot.
Ontarians aged 80 and older can start booking their second doses next week, while those aged 70 and older will become eligible for second shots in the week of June 14.
After that, the province says residents will become eligible for second shots based on when they got their first dose.
Those between the ages of 12 and 25 will become eligible in early August.
