COVID-19: Mayors of hot spot Peel Region want shorter dose interval for AstraZeneca recipients – Toronto


Mayors in an Ontario COVID-19 hot spot want the province to reduce the interval between vaccine doses for Oxford-AstraZeneca shot recipients.

Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown has written to the premier and health minister asking for an eight-week dosing interval for people who took the first dose of the vaccine.

His Mississauga counterpart, Mayor Bonnie Crombie, also posted a call on Twitter for an eight-week dose interval.

AstraZeneca recipients currently must wait 12 weeks between vaccine doses in Ontario while other provinces have shortened the gap to eight weeks.
