The province says that 85% of residents 12 and older have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and 88% have at least one shot.

The numbers come after the latest pandemic projections from Ontario’s COVID-19 Scientific Advisory Table, which indicate that intensive care occupancy is likely to increase in the province in the coming months, along with steady growth in cases.
