Yesterday, bookings on the provincial system more than doubled,” the health minister tweeted.

“Today, we’re already seeing thousands [of] more Ontarians roll up their sleeves, nearly half of whom are receiving their first dose.”.

Ontario’s Ministry of Health says on August 31st, 3,479 appointments were booked through the provincial booking system.

Though it’s only been two days, Ontario has averaged only 35,000 vaccine doses administered this month.

Quebec and British Columbia, two other provinces that have since implemented and or announced a vaccine certificate system, reported an increase in vaccine bookings shortly after.

The number of daily diagnoses of the virus has been rising steadily in recent weeks, with 865 new cases reported in Ontario on Thursday. »
