Just had my first shot this morning - heartening to see a well-organized and attended clinic running like a smoothly oiled machine. No vaccine hesitancy in sight - just the grateful public doing what's needed.
With the US and now the UK essentially fully opened up and in the US case dropping mask mandates, the pressures on Trudeau to get us to them same point ASAP.
In terms of percentage of people who have had their first dose, US is at 48% while Canada is at 45%. We will most likely pass the US in first doses per capita very soon. UK is over 55%.Yes but the US and UK are much farther along the vaccine rollout.
Unless we somehow get 30 million doses overnight I don't see how we can drop the mask mandates faster.

Just booked vaccine appointments for my wife and I now that we are eligible. I can understand other people's frustration with booking an appointment. A consolidated website to book appointments would be very useful. I waited "in line" for 35 minutes on the provincial system, entered my postal code, and found the earliest appointment was June 3rd. Before selecting a time, I visited the City's booking website with all their various health partners to see what they were offering. Nothing available through East Toronto Health Partners, which is closest to where we live, but an abundance available through the Scarborough Health Network. I was able to book appointments for this evening from hundreds of available slots at Centennial College (where my father volunteers). It's like finding a job - not what you know, but who you know (or who knows you).
