Those between 60 and 64 years of age can now register to receive a dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine at fifty-seven local pharmacies.

The rollout of vaccines at pharmacies is part of a provincial pilot project taking place right now in Toronto, Kingston, and Windsor Essex.

The province announced a full list of pharmacies, Wednesday afternoon, and launched a dedicated website for finding the location closest to you.

The province’s website lists three pharmacies in Amherstburg, two pharmacies in Belle River, two pharmacies in Essex, one pharmacy in Harrow, three pharmacies in Kingsville, five pharmacies in LaSalle, one pharmacy in Lakeshore, four pharmacies in Leamington, one pharmacy in St. Clair Beach, one pharmacy in Stoney Point, one pharmacy in Tecumseh, and thirty-three pharmacies in Windsor.

Participating pharmacies include Rexall, Shoppers Drug Mart, Costco, Walmart, Zehrs, Real Canadian Superstore, Pharmasave, Pharmachoice, and numerous local independent pharmacies.

Walmart’s four locations in Windsor-Essex are on the list.

Most locations require appointments according to the list and some require you to make an appointment over the phone. A number of locations including Costco and Rexall have online booking systems.

And here are some of the various pharmacy booking websites that have been set up at this time:

The province has said the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine is being administered only to those aged 60 to 64 years of age at this time due to the recommendations of the National Advisory Committee for Immunization to not vaccinate those 65 and older with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

To get vaccinated, the province says you need to have been born between 1957 and 1961, you have to live, work or go to school in Kingston, Toronto or Windsor, and you must have a valid Ontario health (OHIP) card, or other form of valid government-issued identification.

The province released a questions and answer section about pharmacy vaccinations on their website here.
