People 55 years and older in the London region are about to have far more options for getting their COVID-19 vaccinations.
After just two locations were announced in the province’s first rollout, the province has announced a significant expansion that will see 45 locations in the region offer the vaccine.
On Sunday, the Ontario government announced that an additional 700 pharmacies will begin offering the AstraZeneca vaccine to those in the province 55 and older starting the week of April 12.
Officials say a total of 31 pharmacies in London and 14 across Middlesex County will soon be offering the vaccine. That will include locations in several communities, like Strathroy, Dorchester, Glencoe, Parkhill and Lucan, among others.
A full list of locations in London and Middlesex County can be found below. Participating retailers include Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Rexall, Loblaw, Pharmasave and independent drug stores.
Besides those pharmacies, the London area also has three mass vaccination centres that are now inoculating people as young as 65 years of age.
Officials noted that not all pharmacies will start vaccinating at the same time. For information on how to book a pharmacy shot, visit the province’s COVID-19 website.
