Ontario to update COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan at Wednesday news conference


Ontario is expected to update its COVID-19 vaccination rollout plan today.

Health Minister Christine Elliott and Solicitor General Sylvia Jones are scheduled to address the province’s ongoing immunization effort.

Ontario said on Tuesday that a total of more than 5.4 million vaccine doses have been administered in the province.

That amounts to 82.39 per cent of Ontario’s available vaccine supply.

A provincial court is also expected to rule today on allegations of discrimination in Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination rollout.

The constitutional challenge turns on whether vulnerable people have had fair access to the vaccine.
