Those healthcare workers who had taken the first dose of the vaccine 28 days ago were given the second shot on Saturday, state immunisation officer Dr Rajendra Borkar said.

High priority health-care workers include those who work in community care settings with a lower risk of exposure, including mental health and addiction services and campus health-care workers.

It comes as ministers said the United Kingdom was on track to meet its pledge of offering a vaccine to everyone in the top four priority groups by Monday.

A separate health official, also asking not to be named, said that the government had acquired an initial 1,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine.

He added that the Ontario government has almost finished offering a first dose to all residents of long-term care homes and high-risk retirement homes in the province.

Everyone else should receive the second dose between 35 and 42 days after getting the first shot.
