Vaccines at pharmacies open to people age 55 and older

Today, more pharmacy locations have been added for people aged 55 or older to get the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. With today’s expansion there are 700 pharmacy locations offering vaccines. The Ontario government states this number could reach approximately 1,500 by the end of April. Ontario is not using AstraZeneca vaccine for individuals under 55, while data is being reviewed by Health Canada.

By appointment only, local locations include Pharma Plus in Picton and Kelly’s Drug Store in Belleville, as well as pharmacies in Campbellford, Napanee, Kingston and Amherstview. Click here for the full Ontario government listings of locations and hours 

The province continues to work with primary care professionals to offer vaccinations in primary care settings and community locations, such as physician offices, in collaboration with public health units. This initiative is expanding from locations in six public health unit regions to offering the vaccine in every region across the province covering all 34 public health units.

An additional 583,400 doses of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine was received on April 1. In April, the province is expecting to receive 1,584,180 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and 751,500 doses of the Moderna vaccine.
