A spokeswoman for Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Sunday that the AstraZeneca shot would be offered to younger age groups starting Tuesday, at pharmacies and 'some primary care settings'.

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has retained Anil Kapoor, one of Canada's leading criminal and constitutional lawyers, to lead a legal team being assembled as we speak, to launch a legal challenge before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, most likely by way of injunction.
